More 3 step stamping

Here is my yellow version of the 3 step stamping of the roses.  I only had one set of the stamped leaves and it just looked way to bare to me so I added some Martha Stewart leaf punches that I did a bit of scoring on to give it a little more dimension.  The base of the card was cut on my Silhouette. Using white card stock I inked the embossing folder with a light tan so that the background of the embossing would be a tan color and then when done embossing I swiped some yellow ink over the raised areas.

Silhoutte -- Card Base
Papers were in my scraps not sure of the maker
Paper Studio-- Silk screen embossing folder
Spellbinders -- Classic Square die ( for framing of the embossed part)
Altenew --Vintage Roses stamps (Rose and leaves)
Memory box -- Leavenworth Butterfly die and the small butterflies
Recollections -- Lace on a roll
EK Success -- small punch flowers
Martha Stewart -- leaf punch
Hero Arts -- Birthday messages stamp set
Stickles -- Cinnamon
Black enamel for the small butterflies

Evelyn update:  They are keeping her right at 27 mls so far but it still looks good that she should be able to come home on Monday.  My friends are getting so much info given to them about what to do when she comes home it is getting a little overwhelming for them.

Hope you will enjoy a great weekend. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and your comments, so good hearing from you,

Oh, Connie, what a beautiful step card, and I love your three-step stamping. The flowers are gorgeous, and I love the embossed background. Yes, I'll continue to pray for baby Evelyn's mom and dad. I can only imagine all the information they are being given to care for her when she goes home. Praying that God will give them peace and joy and that they will rest in hard during this scary time for them. We know that God will encourage them. Thanks, sweet friend, for sharing this card and the update on this precious little one and her parents! Hugs!

So pleased to hear little Evelyn is improving!

How pretty! Your rose is just so beautiful and it looks great as a step design. I love the embossed background. Your inking really brought out the pattern. I can imagine your friends are very overwhelmed with all the information and instructions. Amazing how soon she's going home, really. Modern medicine!
