Painted Vellum Card

Hi friends:  Here's another card using painted vellum and heat embossing. I used a pink card for my base and stamped the dot flowers background stamp repeatedly with Versamark Ink, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Next, I used the Flourish Layering stencil with embossing paste to create my "vine" behind the flowers.  The Mother's Day sentiment stamp was stamped onto black cardstock with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The various flowers were also stamped on vellum with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  I fussy-cut the flowers and painted them with Pearlescent Watercolors and layered them on the cardfront.  The card is finished with some tulle, a charm tied on with twine, and some gems for the flower centers. Thanks for taking a look! Have a great day!
