DD92 Bold and Sassy "Thinking of You"

Hi Stampers!
Another week has gone by and now it is time for the DD92 “Bold and Sassy” Dynamic Duo Challenge combining Midnight Muse and Rose Red and the LOVEFEST2014I Lots of Layers Splitcoaststampers Challenge.    I decided to "pull out the punches", so to speak, for this one :-) 

I hope that you will find the time to stop by and check out the rest of the fabulous Dynamic Duos Design Team projects and create one of your own using this week’s colors - we would love to have you join us!!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP)- I already had this one previously embossed and ready to go from the retired DSP,  Summer Smooches.  

Lightly sand the DSP to bring out the white core and adhere onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and adhere to Midnight Muse cardstock (I also used scrap strips to give the illusion of a solid piece behind the sentiment- now you know all of my secrets :-)).
Mount the sentiment onto the card front lining up the edge with the Midnight Muse layer.
Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ along with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock and add to the card front.

Using a brayer, apply Rose Red Classic Ink in a graduated manner onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Repeatedly stamp the leaf image from Petal Parade using Midnight Muse Classic Ink, punch out using the 1 ¼” Square Punch.  Layer onto Midnight Muse cardstock and trim. 

Stamp the flowers from Petite Petals using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Rose Red cardstock and punch out using the Petite Petal Punch.  Adhere to the corner of the squares and add a Pearl to the center of the flower. 

Trim the background panel and adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and again onto the Midnight Muse card base.

Create the paper bow using the Large Oval Punch- punch out two ovals from Rose Red cardstock, curl with the Bone Folder and adhere to create the bow portion, add the two sides of the bow to a small scrap of paper, create the tails using the Hexagon punch and adhere below the bow. 

Mount the two squares to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the bow.  Add a few Midnight Muse leaves using the Bird Builder Punch and a flower to the center (created in the same manner as above).

Stamp the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and Bitty Butterfly Punch. 

Add the butterflies to the card front and finish off with the Pearl stands for the butterfly bodies :-)

Love the partial embossing on this one--i had to check whether you had used embossing paste or dry embossing. This is a beautiful concoction, as always. Not sure if the Card Concept "flowers" inspiration is still going on, but you should link this one up!
