If I could wrap LOVE & Amaryllis Flower

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today's post is going to be a short one, as I wanted to share my card designed for today's Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge. I try to join in on these at least 2 times a week, it helps to get some cards done for the year.
I loved working with today's sketch, as its a little different. I wanted to add some flowers, so I used the Spellbinders dies for these. They are done by distressing, and then using the glass Technique, and you can find that in my Tutorials. For the centers on these, I did add some red Glitter Glass. Always love using these, and it gives a little bit of a different look.
The Design paper is Bazzill, and so are the card stock pieces. I added sewing to each layer on my card, love how it embellishes the layers.
Tag- is spellbinders, and I cut it 2 times. Once in white, and the other in black. My sentiment is from "I Brake For Stamps" LOVE all the selection you can choose from. If you would like to SAVE 10% be sure to used SAVE10CHERYL at checkout.
Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and so are the leaves.

Update on my Amaryllis flower

I have never seen this bloom before so it was super exciting taking photo's of it daily. I thought it would have 1 bloom(one flower) but it has 4 in each stem. Currently the other stem is working on opening all for, so I will have 8 flowers on this. I am not sure how long they will stay, but I am enjoying the beauty of these! I've had this for 2 years, and this is the 1st year its bloomed for me....hehehehe ok just had to share!
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
