Snow Date cardmaking #3

On to the 3rd card and it's a tad bit easier than the last one and i modified it so that anyone can make this card.  You can omit the circles and still get the same look, i would add some green w/the flowers though if you omit the circles.  The inspiration for this card is again in Magnolia Ink's Easter issue from last year and is on page 41.

here are the supplies that i used:
5 x 5 card
First mat 4.75 x 4.75- brown
inside the brown mat use aqua (just a bit smaller than above size)
inside the aqua mate use the aqua pattern again cut a bit smaller than the aqua above
Brown- 2.75 x 2.75
Again add the aqua inside a bit smaller
Cream w/words on top of the aqua above a bit smaller.
Easter sentiment -matted two times w/brown and aqua
distress ink
Green circles- 3" and 3.25"
Ribbon, tulle & flowers
 Distress your small cream piece and then double mat the pieces as shown.
 Distress your sentiment and double mat as shown.  Adhere the cream matted piece on top of the patterned aqua piece.  Foam tape the sentiment to the card as shown.
Adhere your two circles as shown..i used the fine tip glue pen.
 Make a tulle bow and add your flowers.  The image will sit just above the "Happy Easter" to the right. The flowers will balance the image being to one side.

My finished card w/a Magnolia stamp:
