Brocade Flowers

Happy Mother's Day!

I am loving all the challenges that Cath is giving us at Moxie Fab World to showcase Paper Craft's newest publication "Card Creations, Volume 10"!   This one is to use Brocade or Damask. I pulled out some golden oldies stamps to make my card:

MFW Damask & Brocade challenge

supplies: white cardstock, pink card base, Whispers Brocade stamp, Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Butter Bar midtone inks, Hero Arts CL322 Artistic Borders flowers, VersaFine onyx black ink, CL298 Scattered Leaves, peeled paint distress ink, C2680 Bouquet of Love, Darice Damask embossing folder, Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam squares to pop pink flower

I stamped the brocade pattern in pink and yellow first, then overstamped the flowers and cut them out.  Before embossing the backround, I stamped the sentiment.....the embossing doesn't seem to interfere with the clarity as much as if you stamped over the embossing.
