I stamped the vines & some leaves directly on the background in Olive ink (2nd generation for the solid portion). Then I stamped some more leaves on a scrap paper and cut them out. I stamped various sizes of the flowers on a scrap and cut those out as well. Using the outline of the smallest flower, I stamped some in Olive randomly along the vines.
After cutting out the flowers, I used an embossing stylus (on the two larger sizes only) from the back side to curl back the flower petals, then I rolled it from the front side in the center only to give it some lift. I adhered the larger flowers using 3-D foam tape, and glued the fat end only of the leaves I cut under the flowers. I then curled forward the ends of the leaves. I glued the smallest flowers directly to the paper, adhering smaller leaves under some of them.
I adhered Opaques Pearls to the centers of all of the flowers. My bow at the top is some baker's twine from the Paradise Assortment - I poked holes right through the kraft card base and threaded it through on a needle and tied a bow.
Here's a closeup of some flowers - you can also see a bit of the background, which I filled in using the stipple brush from the Texture Tools set and some more Olive ink:
