This challenge is to use die cuts and minimal stamping. Well, that's pretty much what I do most of the time anyhow.
The inner petals and centers of each flower layer have been burnished so they are nicely rounded and shaped, adding so much dimension. Once they are adhered, I add a big drop of glue, tap it down and add the micro beads. It's easier to do this over a bowl or paper plate, so the beads aren't going everywhere, and you can put them back into the container.
The back panels are embossed separately and the flourish cut apart for use.

WOW! I am loving this card. I got a bunch of those little beads a long time ago and have never used them...thank you for reminding me to try using them! Your flowers ROCK on that amazing ef in the background that PERFECTLY compliments thiose blooms. I love that you used peices of the CLD die as leaves. A fav for sure!!!!

Oh my, how DID I miss this - wow, wow, wow - what dimension with the layered flowers. Your bg is so gorgeous, your embossing looks so thick and rich - wondering if my cuttlebug is giving out on me, because mine never looks THAT texture....a real stunner!
