This is probably the way we most use our dies - cut out a shape and incorporate it into a design. But I did a few other things. 1) I cut the flowers from patterned paper; 2) I kept the negative space from cutting the flowers (and will show you a card tomorrow which uses that piece of paper); 3) I stamped the flowers before cutting them. The leaves were stamped and then cut with a punch.
The flower centers are black pearls and I added a strip of black and lime green ribbon. I used the green ribbon to made a "half bow" using two strips of ribbon. Then I matted the lime green cardstock onto black before adhering it to the card. And now you've seen green flowers.
