I started by embossing with gold embossing powder my flowers onto patterned paper, we all know we need to use up our stash of papers :) Going through the paper pack was this panel with the sentiment on it and I thought it would be a great backdrop to the flowers. I also cut the leaf flourish out of the same paper pack.
To go with the gold embossing of the flowers I decided to take my stencil and apply versamark ink right from the pad through the stencil onto the top portion of this panel, it already had some splotches of ink so I thought it would work great and tie it all together.
Trying to get more of the shimmer of the embossing with the next picture, another gloomy day here so it didn't turn out as well as I would like.

As we take time this weekend to have fun with family and friends and start off our summer, I hope we all take out the time and reflect on those men and women, who gave of themselves for our country and to the families they left behind. Even if we may not be happy with the way our country is going right at the moment, I can still say I feel so blessed to be an American!!
Thanks so very much for taking the time to stop by today,
