This card is for the CC522 challenge this week to use Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate and Whisper White, and also for the MMTPT challenge 346 "Layers, Layers, We Must Have More Layers". Our cards this week are going to our own yorkiemama (Pam Conner), who is in rehab at this time recuperating from a serious health incident and could use a paper hug. Pam is an amazing crafter who is known as a die cut diva, so we were asked to use lots of dies on our cards.
Pam's gallery is phenomenal, and my card can't compare to her beautiful creations, but I hope she enjoys it. There is really no explanation needed, here, Unless maybe it's hard to tell that the flower centers are gray. I gave them a heavy coat of Rock Candy Stickles and added Glossy Accents when dry. Oh, and the flourish die I used as a stem is mounted on strips of rolled 1/4 inch Sookwang tape - about three feet of it, LOL!
As always, thanks for looking!

Those flowers are really beautiful, Jody! The centres look so glossy, they must be almost like crystals. You roll the tape to give extra depth? I guess it's probably easier than my usual messing around trying to cut really narrow strips of foam tape without it sticking to my scissors!!

What a wonderful die you used for the flowers and love the creative way you used that flourish! You formed them so beautifully too! That background die cut is so perfect with this backed by that gorgeous green you chose.

Rolled sookwang tape ? Yet another of your off the wall ideas for adding depth to your wonderful creations? These flowers are so pretty and the color is so soothing!
Love the background with the Tapestry die - these colors together make for a calm and peaceful looking card, and could be used for so many different occasions - thanks for bringing Spring back for us here in the frigid northeast (the cold March winds are a-blowing!)
