Hello and welcome...
I have used part of a Woodware stamp for today's card.  It's called Bold Blooms and as you will see further down this post there are two flowers in the stamp set and one sentiment

I stamped the largest flower onto white card stock using an Adirondack Pitch Black Ink Pad

I used 4 Chameleon Colour Tones to colour the image as well as their colourless blender.  I then cut out the flower freehand

I layered a piece of lilac card onto the white base card, then cut some small pearls to add as part of the decoration.  Using wet glue I 'drew' a line of glue the way I wanted the pearls to lie onto the lilac card, I let the glue go 'tacky' then placed the pearls on top of the glue

I added a piece of mounting foam to the back of the flower head and some wet glue to the stalk then adhered it to the card

I cut the heads off lilac stamens, applied a pool of wet glue into the centre of the flower and individually placed each stamen head into the glue......  you don't have to do that, there are many other ways to decorate the centre of the flower, such as; gems, dazzlers, sequins, colouring it in, to name a few and much quicker!

The sentiment was stamped onto white card, again using Adirondack Pitch Black Ink Pad and I fussy cut it out, added mounting foam to both ends and adhered it to my card

I added a few sequins to the card to complete

The finished card measures 11cm x 15.5cm
