My Aunt is a most cherished and special lady, tiny, bubbly, wise and loving. She suffered a stroke over 40 years ago, and except for difficulties with her speech, made a remarkable recovery. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
I stamped twice; coloured both and cut one set of flowers out. I curled the petal edges and put them on top of first ones, gluing only the centres with glue dots. I wanted some dimension, but not too much since the card had to go in the mail. I only used part of the embossing folder.

I have this EF and never would have thought to use it this way. This card is just beautiful! I love the dimension on your flowers (and that shade of turquoise) and your coloring ROCKS!(I love the shading behind them and think that is genius!) It has the appearance of one that you might find at Hallmark ONLY BETTER!
