Embossed Flowers

Over at Embellish Magazine, the challenge is to use the colors given and to include an embossed flower.  Here's the photo inspiration:


I used a little flower embossing pattern on the red flower and the background, and a dot pattern on the leaves and the yellow part of the flower.


supplies: cream and tan card stock, October Afternoon and Memory Box design papers, Sizzix embossing folders in little flowers and dots, red button, twine, Hero Arts S5485 Many Petals, CG286 Leaves, CL434 Just Find Me, versafine onyx black ink and barn door distress ink

Here's a detail photo to show you the 2 different embossing designs:

Love this, Lin! That embossing does add detail and texture. You were born to create with flowers!

Your embossing gives your pretty flower such great texture, Lin! Beautiful card!

Oh my, Lin! You've really worked in all of these colors so beautifully! Love the emphasis on the flower right in the center!

So pretty! I love that big, bold flower and the way you broke up the sentiment. Thanks for playing with us at Embellish!

This is truly lovely! You used the colors so beautifully!! I don't know if I like the flower or the background more...I think I love both! Thanks also for the sweet comment over Scrap rendez-vous! You're the BEST!

Lin it is as if you have a close-up of one of the flowers in the photo! I like the added embossing and the texture it gives your design.

Gorgeous card, Lin! Your flower is so pretty and I love all the embossing!

I really don't use embossing enough - love this pretty card - the embossing and polka dots go together perfectly.

And Lin, I'm so enjoying the Susan Branch blog - thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. Bought her book again too - can't think why I gave my first copy away!

This is super cute! Love all the polka dots, both patterned and embossed! Great job with the colors!

Wonderful piecing of the flower and the patchwork is perfect background to your flower.
