Flower Shop Card - Embossing and Sponging

I thought I would do this technique I love and haven't done it for a while, I stamped the flowers in Versamark Ink and embossed them with white embossing powder, heat set. Then I sponged the flowers using some daubers and cut them out with the corresponding punch. You can hand cut them if you prefer, I then using a bone folder curled the flowers and applied them to the card with the fine tip glue pen. I love how this gives it a 3D effect as my base cardstock is Melon Mambo then I used my "Lots of Labels" framelits to cut out the centre. Stamped my sentiment from the "Feel Goods" stamp set and embossed the top layer with Elegant Dots embossing folder. I then applied the top layer that I embossed with dimensionals to give the 3D effect!!

I would like to enter this card in two challenges today, please check both challenges out and be inspired by the cards already entered. As we are created to share our knowledge of our craft, that is how we learn from each other.

With Pinterest Challenge it is my take on all of the lovely flowers embossed by the lovely Anja, I took it one step further by sponging them once I embossed them and cut them out before adding them to my card.
