Big Bold Bloom

I used Beate's weekend sketch for this card. I actually found this flower all done up and ready to go in a pile of my stuff today. It's from forever ago, like a year?!? Beate's sketch came to mind immediately.

The flower is stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I think the paper is Runway Circles by Top Line Creations. I layered it on Stampin' Up prints paper in Celery, then on Petals and Paisleys, each edge rubbed on Vintage Photo Distress ink (Tim Holtz). Because I wanted to layer the celery with dimensionals, I first layered it on the same sized card stock for stiffness. Add sentiment from Essence of Love and a few little gemstones.

Recipe:
Stamps-Big Blooms (retired) and Essence of Love (Stampin Up)
Paper- white, Petals and Paisleys, prints celery (SU); Runway circles (Top Line Creations)
Ink- Versamark, old olive (SU); vintage photo distress ink (Tim Holtz)
Other- clear embossing powder, brown organdy, dimensionals; large gemstone (Darice); tiny gemstones (Hero Arts); Paper piercer
