Hope you are having a great weekend. Tomorrow we are having a cookout at our house with family and friends. I still have some flowers and herbs on my deck I need to get planted today, but I am waiting for it to warm up then will be spending my afternoon outdoors.
For this card I started by using the Marianne (DS0912) embossing folder to emboss a 5.5" x 6" piece of white card stock. I centered the embossing folder in the middle then used a Swiss Dots embossing folder to add additional dots to the two sides so it would be completely covered with embossing. A piece of purple card stock was attached to the back to show through the cut out portions of the embossed design.
A rose was created using the PunchBunch "Begonia" Petals punch (tutorial here). I used a daisy punch and small blossoms punch to create the additional flowers. Behind the rose I added a couple of the Cheery Lynn "Tropical Flourishes", the new "Princess Tree" for additional leaves, and some of the new Marianne "Anja" leaves. Small white Kaiser Craft pearls were added to the center of the purple flowers and stamens from the new Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower" were layered, shaped, and added to the center of each daisy. A few Martha Stewart "Branches" were also added. Up in the right hand corner I added one of the Cheery Lynn Lace Corners.
