Let The Flowers Bloom...

Happy TGIF Everyone! - even if it is Friday the 13th! ;-) Are you all ready for the weekend? I know I am! Looking forward to soaking in some sun, relaxing, reading and also some craft time :-)
Ok onto my card now...today I have another Heartfelt Creation card for you...

I used the following stamp sets and dies for this card: Twining Clematis stamp set HCPC 3454, Malabar Clematis stamp set HCPC 3453 and Cross and Lilies Die set HCD 719. All of these are available through Dutch Paper Crafts! You'll find ordering instructions in almost every post at the very end! It's as easy as writing an email!!!
The embossed background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder from Sizzix and I distressed it with Distress Ink 'Pumice Stone' to give it a washed out stoney look. Ribbon, pearls, flower and metall embellishments are from my stash. The rose leave punch is from Nellie Snellen and also available at Dutch Paper Crafts

This photo shows the card from a different angle so you can see the dimension added to the image by using both stamp sets and cutting out single flowers with the matching dies. I then added the flowers using a 3D glue called Olbas. It's available here and perfect for the 3D technique.

Have a wonderful weekend!
