White and Bright

I have been making a lot of Christmas Cards lately so yesterday I felt like having a bit of a change.  Since it rained all day here and was dull and miserable, I decided to create something bright and cheerful. 

I created the background using an embossing folder and layered a die cut trellis over the top.  The trellis die is one of the new Intricut dies by Hobbycraft, and as you can see it cuts really fine.  I think I will have to get some more of these!

To create the panel, I stamped my image with Versamark and heat embossed the stamped image using white embossing powder.  (This is a stamp by Crafty Individuals).  Then I used Cosmo Cricket Swatch Sticks over the top so that the embossed image created a resist effect.  I layered the panel over a ribbon and added a large ribbon bow. 

I die cut the flowers and tinted them a bit using Polychromos Pencils which I blended using a Promarker blender pen, and added some stick on pearls to the centres.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Cats - Anything goes
Crafty Ribbons challenge - Flowers and pearls
Perfectly Created Chaos - Heat Embossing.
