CSAD #194 & 365 Cards Day 14

It's Friday Friends over at Card Sketch a Day and this is the card I have submitted for sketch # 194. I have also submitted this for 365 Cards Day 14 where the challenge was to make DIY flower embellishments from paper.

The rose paper is a vellum that is very richly coloured by Folia. The oval is a K & Co Brenda Walton embossed cardstock. I particularly liked that it has little hearts embossing and felt it would be a nice touch with the sentiment which is clear DCWV sticker mounted onto white and then burgundy cardstock. The flowers are HOTP swirls using rose HOTP paper in pinks and reds to pick up the colours used. I have accented the centres with clear gems. The ribbon is recycled from a boxof Thorntons choccies (yum yum)

Love the papers you chose to use for this sketch.

The embossing on the pink card stock really makes this card special.

Great job on the flowers.
