WWC224 - Karen's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello there!  Today I am hosting Watercooler Wednesday's #224 - Karen's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge and I am so pleased you stopped by.  

I've been playing with alcohol inks and had some scraps I wanted to use to make into a floral card.  I just ordered these fun floral die-cuts (Newton's Nook Flower Trio) for this idea.  
Die cut alcohol ink flowers using Newton's Nook Floral Trio Die
I started by die cutting the parts to each flower/leaf and then assembled.  I wanted a textured background so I used an embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations) on a neutral cardstock panel.  I like that there are different sizes of "dots" as well as empty spaces.  I also diecut my sentiment from an alcohol ink scrap.  I added the  dry embossed panel to a white A2 card and then added the flowers with foam dots for added dimension.  I like this cheery card and it is going to my mom on her birthday.  Red is her favorite color so I thought she would like to top bloom.

I am entering this card in Alphabet Challenge "E is for Embossing Folder".  I love the texture that embossing folders add to a project.

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
