Blooms with Delight!

This card is for this weeks MFT sketch challenge on the MFT Members Forum on SCS. This sketch is a little different in some ways ... for one the main image is divided and the sentiment runs down the card rather than across. So I had to think about this one for a little bit until I worked out what I could do and stay in line with the sketch. I am very happy with the end result!

To start I stamped the vase of flowers from MFT's "Bundle of Bouquets" set and I also stamped the scroll from " Boho Blossoms" at the top of the panel using chocolate chip SU ink. I used my cuttlebug die to create the lattice piece which I used to divide the panel .... adding a couple of olive brads on each end of the lattice piece.

The sentiment is also from "Bundle of Bouquets" .... which is actually in 3 lines but I stamped it on this card so it appears in 1 line.

So nice! How did you get the lattice to stay down - is it glued? I love the effect!!
