Thank you card with Tim Holtz flower and stencil

With this "Thank you" card I join the Monday challenge on Simon Says Stamp. The theme: For the love of plants.

For making this, I cut out a rectangle from chipboard.

Then I put a layer of gesso on both sides.

Then I used one of the stencils of Tim Holtz (Blossom) and modelling paste to make a floral background.

Then I coloured both sides mostly with Ranger Bundled Sage Distress Ink and a little bit of Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap for the edges. On the floral side I put Mowed Lawn too.

I stamped the flowers with one of the stamps of Tim Holtz (Flower Garden) and StazOn Ganache ink.

I coloured the flower with Ranger Distress Markers (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Walnut Stain).

With scissors I cut out the stamped and coloured elements of the flowers (flower head and stem). 

After I glued the parts on the card with Aleene's Tacky Glue (Quick Dry).

A made two holes with Crop-A-Dile Big Bite.

A made a "thank you" saying with Tim's stamp: Simple Saying

I coloured the edges of the label with Victorian Velvet and after I glued it on the card.

One ribbon and voilà.... my card is ready.

P.S.: Oouups, I forgot to say that I rubbed Judikins Micro Glaze on all surfaces with my fingers to protect the ink, but you can use Tim's Micro Glaze as well.
