So for my card I just wanted to make a beautiful Mother's Day bouquet - so I stamped and punched and fussy cut a bunch of flowers and leaves. After stamping the stems, I added the flowers and leaves to the card with glue dots at the bottom of each - this allowed the flowers to pop out a bit at the top and give the bouquet some great dimension. You can see that more closely below.
I added a bow made with the new ribbon combo from SU's Ornate Garden suite. Then added some colored gems - I always keep a bunch of colored gems on hand - both the ones from SU; but also some clear ones that I have colored with blends like these.
My 3D item is a cute little decorated Dollar store candle. I just wrapped it with a couple layers of coordinating cardstock. Then added a mini bouquet and gems to the front - as well as the Happy Mother's Day sentiment.
