Bouquet for a mom

I no longer have any mothers te receive my cards, but this would be most appropriate for any woman.
Supplies:  image by ODB, colored with metallic markers; shimmer cs (Recollections); embossing with LifeStyle Crafts folder; ribbon from Pizzazz Aplenty; Blessings die by CheeryLynn, enhanced with glitter.
Technique:  I tried to use a dab of Versamark reinker and black embossing powder for the flower centers and butterfly markings.  I should have practiced first, as it did not work well.  I am not sure if it was the technique or the shiny cs, but the heat gun pretty much made the embossing powder disappear rather than create a shiny dot - I did a second application on several flowers.

I love this stamp from A Daily Bread - so beautiful - it's in my stash too :) I also like the background texturing you created - it works well with the flowers. Thank you for using a Sketch Saturday layout for your card. Take care.
