Here is my "Thank-you card" using the DSP Berry Blossom. 

Started the card by using the embossing folder Elegant Bouquet and Wisteria Wonder Cardstock. Than added a strip of Calypso Coral in the middle along with a strip of DSP Berry Blossoms.

Punches made this flower easy enough to do along with stampin dimensionals. Here I used the stamp set called With All My Heart in Soft Suede Ink and punched it out with the Fancy Flower Punch.

Than, I punched out a 2 3/8" scallop circle in Calypso Coral to mat behind it and 2 more 2 3/8" scallop circles in Lucky Limeade to mat behind that. Last but not least, I punched out the leaf from the Bird Builder Punch and used the Boho Blossom punch in Wisteria Wonder for the middle top flower.

Finally, I took the white uniball gel pen and added some white dots and dashes into the leaves and added a basic pearl to top the middle of the flower. My goal was to create a flower resembling the paper.

For the sentiment, I used the Decorative Label Punch along with the stamp set With All My Heart and Soft Suede Ink. Also sponged around it to give it make it stand out more. Hope you enjoy!!
