The background here was created by dry embossing white paper, turning over & coloring the raised images on the reverse side. I used copic markers with a very light hand. Some colors bleed better than others. This is very quick, it takes only a few minutes to color.
The original side will be a more muted effect than the colored side, but both look great as backgrounds. I used the muted side for a softer effect on my card.
The frame & greeting is stamped & trimmed, paper pricking the inside oval, mounted with foam tape. Flower is die cut white & copic colored. Pearls added to flower & frame.
This fits the paper pricking CAS challenge & F4A challenge to use 4 or more flowers.

This is absolutely gorgeous! The flower so set off the entire card along with the pink frame! I have to try this technique!
