Vellum Flowers

Hi everyone!!  This card has been sitting on my desk for a few days.  I wasn't sure what to do with the main panel.  I had the flowers and sentiment, but too much white.  I embossed the background shimmer white cardstock to give it some contrast against the label (apparently that's my go-to technique...or what I said in my Embellish write-up!! I had forgotten I said that last Fall...it is true, but it's only one of them.)  Since this card took on a more casual feel to it with the plaid paper, I only added some ribbon through a slot, no bling.  I think the panel looks a little plain, but the focus is on those fun vellum flowers!!! ACK!!!  When I saw Nicole make these on her blog last month, I knew I had to have those dies :)  Have a wonderful day...we've been having the most amazing weather this week.  I told my dh that if tomorrow is as nice as yesterday, he will be taking me to a patio for cold drinks after work!! Wishing you sunshine where you are...

I loved those flowers Nichole made too and yours are fabulous as well :D Such a soft feel to them. Love how you ran the ribbon through the label and one can never go wrong with Swiss Dots LOL! Enjoy your afternoon drinks on the patio - I'm loving this amazing weather :D

What a beautiful Mother's day card. I love the plaid like paper and vellum flowers. I need to buy more vellum. It was a great sketch wasn't it?
