So can you see it? Do you see the dimention? I stamped thr tupil on DP and then I stamped it again and only cut out certain sections and then proped them up on dimentions...for the stem I actually colored the stem and one leaf...then paper pieced one flat and one on dimentionals as well...I loveeeee it!
