Stamp the large jar with Basic Gray ink on white cardstock (Layer #3)

Stamp the stems inside the jar with Shaded Spruce ink -- first, ink the stamp, stamp the full strength ink on a scrap paper, and stamp the 2nd generation inside the jar
Stamp the reverse side of the smaller jar with Pool Party ink to create the water inside the jar -- first, ink the stamp, stamp the full strength ink on a scrap paper, and stamp the 2nd generation inside the jar

Give the large flowers a little bit of glitz with Wink of Stella
Color the white twine with the dark Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends alcohol marker
Tie the twin in a bow (this card features a quadruple bow; create the bow of your choice)
Attach the bow with a strong adhesive like liquuid glue, Mini glue dots, or Tear & Tape
Stamp the sentiment (from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set) in Melon Mambo ink on a small piece of Pool Party cardstock
Trim and adhere the sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Adhere the White cardstock (Layer #3) with your stamped images, bow, and sentiment, to the Pool Party cardstock (Layer #2)
