Favorite Die of the Month Continued

Hello again friends and readers!

If you haven't read Monday's post Here, I'm sharing cards I made using my favorite diecut of the month throughout this week.
 
For today's card I did another red, brown combination, but I used a different technique for my flower die,
 
I cut an 8 1/2 x 11  card base in half lengthwise at 5 1/2 and a card "front" at 4 x 5 1/4 distressing the entire piece with vintage photo distress ink, and stamped my background over it with white dye ink.
Next I ran my flowers through the machine on plain white cardstock and colored them both with aged mahogany distress ink, then I squirted some stardust stickles and rubbed it with my fingers over them and heat set it to quicken the drying process.
For the stem and leaves I distressed a scrap (the corner of my finished diecut flowers) with both mowed lawn and peeled paint distress ink, cutting at a slight curve for the arched look, the leaves were made using a small portion of my circle punch. I ran some adhesive along the stem and leaves and put them in place then I layered the flowers bending the petals slightly up and put a little dot of glossy accents to hold the flowers together, and put them on my card to finish it off.
