TE November Stamp of the Month + Key Ingredients

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Today I used both the November Stamp of the Month (In the Garden) and the November Key Ingredients (featuring patterned paper from the Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky collection).

I first stamped a bunch of the flowers (in 2 sizes) and used the coordinating die set, Patio Party (sold separately) to die cut them. I also used Pockets & Pages Essentials - 3x4 for my rectangles and Pockets & Pages - 4x4 for the vellum pocket. I stitched the pocket onto my layers, embossed the sentiment on to it, and added the flowers inside, letting a few spill out over the top. The ribbon is from the KI kit. Here's a detail shot:
