Floral Fun!

Hi All

Haven't been too crafty this week even though I had ideas in my head. But finally I got around to making a card I had been thinking about for the sketch at CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge

I knew I wanted to use the Pretty Posies stamp set and dies from CAS-ual Fridays but also wanted to use my favourite flower stamp at the moment Full on Floral. I couldn't think of how to use this background stamp yet still keep the card CAS.....however DT member Michelle's card here gave me an idea-thanks Michelle .I stamped the floral background in versa marker onto maroon coloured card. I then heat embossed it using maroon embossing powder. I love how this looked, still keeping the card CAS but with a lovely textured and shiny background.

Next I heat embossed the flowers and leaves with the same embossing powder-I used scrap water colour card I had left over from the piece of water coloured for the Calling All Sistahs Challenge. Die cut and arranged.

I am quite happy how this turned out.

Have a fun day x

I will enter this into:
