A little drama...

Happy Saturday!
I have a lot of Mother's Day cards to make for an order and Kim's card over at the current Time Out challenge had me inspired to add a little drama to some of my florals!  I was attracted to her dark background, so that was exactly my starting point. 
I embossed my PTI Smokey Shadow with an old CB "Debossed Exotics" EF that I had cut down to a smaller size.  I layered it onto an aqua-teal foil card front and used a piece of pretty patterned paper with the greys and teals in it and made a long fish tail style tag that I stitched at the top.  My florals are a SU that I heat embossed with white onto grey vellum and a few layered PTI Circle Scribbles cut in white and the same foil.  I cut a couple of Memory Box teeny butterflies too and added to a floral center and top right corner. The Mom is a SSS die cut, twice cut from watercolour paper and stacked together.  That's pretty much it!  I am also showing a couple of other cards made from the same inspiration further down in the post..  Thanks so much Kim and the Time Out DT.  All are fabulous cards and inspiration!  
As this has some layering to it, I am also sending it over to the April challenge that Virginia is hosting Layers and Dimension.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  4. Every Momma knows drama, Chriss!! These are gorgeous... I spy that beautiful bloom I've been coveting... Stampin' Up, huh? Is that your source for the grey vellum, as well? Happy Easter!!
