Cut three pieces of florist wire. Then cut 3 pieces of beading wire (about 10cm long).
Attached one end to the top of the florist wire and then thread purple then clear seed beads on to the wire alternating until about 3cm from the end.
Carefully wind the beaded wire around the florist wire and attach the bead wire the the stem. Voila! A lavender stalk.
Emboss a square border onto your card.
Attach the lavender sprigs together with a piece of beading wire; arranging them and bending the stalks until you're happy with them.
Attach to your card by making two small holes through the card, threading a piece of lavender coloured ribbon through and tying a bow.
Dob a small amount of super glue to the bow so it doesn't come undone and also adheres to the wires beneath. Take a green coloured pencil and scribble a background.
Add an insert to your card and you're done!
