·                Cut your cardstock down to measure 12 x 6 inches, score down the middle (at 6 inches).  This will form your base card
·                Cut a piece of postcard paper from your Carders Pack down to measure 5.5 x 5.5 inches.  Chalk with plum and stitch a border all the way around with pink / light plum embroidery silk.  Centre and adhere to your base card
·                Adhere a corresponding die cut to the smaller of your two floral wreath chippies.  Enhance the various areas using your glitter glue (i.e. plum on the berries, green on the leaves, brown on the butterfly).  Once dried, coat the entire surface with Glossy Accents
·                Cut a circle to measure the circumference of the chippie circle, using C86 001 – striped side up.  Adhere with tombow
·                Use your DS046 circles stencil to stencil a few dots at each corner of your base – postcard paper from the carders pack
·                Centre and adhere the chippie to your postcard paper
·                Fussy cut three flowers from the reverse of C86 001.  Chalk the edges and apply a cluster of microbeads to the centre of each.  Adhere these to the bottom left hand portion of your chippie

·                Heat emboss your title with some copper embossing powder and then adhere it in the centre of your chippie
