3. Stamp branch image on a 2.5" x 2.5" piece of Desert Sand CS. Then, sponge a 2.75" x 2.75 White Daisy CS on all 4 sides. Attach Desert Sand CS to center of sponged White Daisy CS.  Attach towards left of card in upper section.  Attach dried flowers if so inclined, if not skip to the last step.

4. Using the Hydrangea, stamp flower base using second generation stamping, then stamp flower outline on top; cut out on lines and add pearl to center of flower.  Stamp smaller flower and trim close. Attach both flowers to lower portion of Desert Sand CS (covering dried flower stems, if used).
