When I read about this challenge, the first thing that came to mind was how pressed flowers become delicate and translucent, so I wanted to use vellum for the flowers on this card. I kept with mostly neutral tones to complement the white vellum. While I was making the card, there was a brown paper bag in my way on the desk and just as I was about to put it in the recycling, I realized it would make a nice background for the vellum flowers. So I trimmed it and matted it with some Naturals Ivory paper to stiffen it up (I wish I had sponged the edges first though). You can barely see the Sanded bg stamped in versamark, but it gives it a bit of texture. I stamped a text bg onto my flowers before gluing them on, embossed the whole card front, stuck on some pearls and a sentiment.
