Vellum Flowers

This is a card I made today for a friend who is going through a particularly sticky patch in her life at the moment so if you have any spare positive vibes to send this way they will be surely welcome.

I made my background paper using alcohol inks.This was paper pierced and a sentiment added using Versamark and white embossing powder. I stamped the flower image twice on vellum, embossed in white and coloured using Memento and Ranger Distress Ink. I fussy cut the spray and mounted it to the background card using glue dots. I then cut out some individual flowers and attached them over the spray. A navy blue mat was added and they were popped up on dimensionals over a pale blue shimmer textured card - gems and baker's twine added to complete.
