PTI's 8th Anniversary: Build a bouquet

Welcome back to day 4 of Papertrey's Anniversary celebration.
Our challenge today is to 'Build a Bouquet'.
Since there's nothing I love more than to build anything with PTI's 
stamps and dies, this was, for me, the most fun yet!
Part of the fun was combining more than one floral stamp set to
create our bouquet.

My bouquet is built around a Limitless Layers heart.
The white laurel is embossed on vellum, layered on Dark Chocolate, then Sweet Blush card stocks.
Bouquet is from: Rosie Posie & Rosie Posie Step 2, Friendly Flowers and Mum's the Word.
I stamped Melissa's laurel from Stamp-A-Faire 2014 Regency Style along the left side in
Sweet Blush, and put a strip of Dark Chocolate striped dp on the right.
the sentiment is embossed with a charcoal powder (but I don't like it, so I'm not 
saying who makes it! Ha!)
Inks are Pure Poppy, Scarlett Jewel, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, and Ripe Avocado.

Things are happily a mess in my craft room, there's snips and ink and, well 
you know, everywhere!
The challenges continue, but the the fun & prizes are worth the mess!

Play along here:
