Cut a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch top folding card base from heavy white card stock.   Cut a base layer from brown card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.   Select the designer paper as shown from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection.  Cut designer paper at 5 x 5 inches.   Adhere layers to the card base.

The flower and leaf images were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card Stock.  I stamped the flowers with Espresso Truffle Ink and the leaves with memento Olive Grove Ink using the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamp Set and cut with the coordinating die.   The flowers were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Olive Grove Ink.   The leaves were sponged with Olive Grove Ink.

The dove image is from the Flowering Dogwood Branches Die.   The dove was embossed using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  The image was heat set.  The image was colored with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers.  The color combo was - C1, C3 and B91.   The dove was cut using the coordinating Dogwood Branches Die.

The flowers where lightly spritzed with a mini mister and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and adhered with the Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.    Emma Lou has a video that shows how to create dimensional flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit here > https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/85/how-to-shape-flowers-with-the-deluxe-flower-shaping-kit

The flowers were adhered to the designer paper as shown.   White Gala Glitz was adhered to the paper where the dove would be placed.   The glitz was adhered using Designer Dries clear Adhesive.
The dove was gently shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and hoped up from the card using dimensional dots.

The sentiment was selected from he designer paper collection, sponged and adhered with dimensional foam dots.
