For my card I used the Flourishes "A Year in Flowers 2" for the flower image and the sentiment from the "Signs of Spring" stamp set. I heat embossed the flower in copper embossing powder. I decided to not color the image in. The outline isn't dark enough so I decided to just keep it simple. Flourishes, I feel, have one the most prettiest stamp images. . .the images are so elegant and can easily make a card or project look so pretty!

I inked the sentiment with Tim Holtz distress ink, cut the sentiment out and layered it over the SU Key Tag label.

The designer paper is by K&Co.

I added the layered Prima flowers but honestly, I don't think I like the flowers on the card. I may remove them. What do you think? Should I leave them on or remove the?. To further embellish the card, I added lace, SU satin ribbon, and finally the brads.

Alrighty then. . .that's it for today! Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday!
