I decided to do a stamped background and then use an embossing folder over it for this card. These stamps are all from a bucket of little stamps from Inkadinkado including the sentiment stamp. I used my stamp a ma jig to line up the stem and leaves with the flower, since these are all red rubber with foam stamps.
I used a gold pen to go around the sentiment die cut so that it stood out from the background, before putting it together I thought I would go around the edges of the card to tie it all in, well as you can see that is hard to do when you have already embossed it, next time I would do the gold pen and then emboss. I was going to try more to feel in but was afraid I would make more of a mess.
One of the girls from my cardmaking group sent me some butterflies that she cut from a sheet of alcohol inks and I thought the colors went pretty with the background, I added some liquid pearls to it.
