Tie up a bunch of flowers

Well, we're not really tying up our flowers but I do hope that you think this card has that look.
Materials needed:
Field Flowers stamp set (#122762)
Greenhouse Gala patterend paper (#117167)
Crisp Cantaloupe card stock 3 x 4 5/8"
Coastal Cabana card stock 2 7/8 x 4 1/4"
Wild Wasabi ink
More Mustard ink
Crisp Cantaloupe ink
3/8" Old Olive Stripe Organdy ribbon (#129291)
3/16" Corner punch
Glue dots

1. Use the corner punch to round all the corners on the Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and the Coastal Cabana card stock. Adhere the Coastal Cabana to the top of the Crisp Cantaloupe. Adhere this to the center of the patterned paper.

2. Cut about 5" of ribbon. Place adhesive on the back and place the ribbon across the patterned paper and the layers of card stock.
3. Stamp the flower image from Field Flowers stamp set on white card stock. First stamp the stem and leaves in Wild Wasabi. Then carefully stamp the bud on the top stem in More Mustard ink. Finally, stamp the flower in Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Cut out around the outside edges of the stamped image. Adhere the flower image to the Coastal Cabana card stock and over the ribbon.
4. Tie a bow with more of the ribbon and cut the ends in an angle. Place glue dots on the back of the ribbon. Place the bow on top of the ribbon and flower stem image.

Hopefully, this will have the look that the ribbon is tied around the flower stems.
5. Adhere the card front to the card back. Add your greeting or message to the inside and send to a friend for a special occasion or just because.
