On SCS, Irene(DandI93) is the featured stamper of the week.  Irene has an amazing gallery, and I chose to case this  beautiful card:

I chose the same flowers, and layered on a piece of colored card stock, but wound up changing almost everything else:

I embossed the white paper, traced the oval and cut it out.   I suppose you could use a nestie to cut the hole, as well, but I embossed first, so I hand cut the oval:)!!  I used an oval nestie and a scalloped one a couple sizes bigger for the frame.  Stamped the flower and stems using a stamp a ma jig for positioning and used it for the sentiment, as well. I like the textured look of Bazzill paper, so I used the back side of a piece of bazzill white for the flowers, so the whites matched.  Attached the white panel of flowers directly to the blushing bride card, and popped up the embossed and framed piece.  
Thanks for looking...hope you have a fantastic day!!
