Thinking of you floral

I have a post for Anna's Craft Cupboard today using the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things stamp Floral Birds.

I needed a "Thinking of You" card for a friend and I decided to use the flowers and butterfly from this stamp set again, but in a very soft way this time.

There is no colouring on this card at all, which is very unusual for me!
I simply white embossed the flowers onto some Lawn Fawn Watercolour Wishes paper.

There are dies included with the stamp set but I decided to fussy cut instead so that there was no border around them.

The black and white paper and the sentiment are from the Photoplay Vintage Girl collection.

Embossing the flowers and butterfly on these papers was much quicker than colouring them and it gave the card a soft and tranquil feeling too.

I glued the flowers straight onto the background but I bent the butterfly's wings a little and popped it up with foam squares.

It can be very sad when you need to make a card like this but I think the effort and thought behind it is appreciated by the person receiving it.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Word Art Wednesday - sentiment
Penny Black and More Challenge - feature a creature
Southern Girls challenge : pop it up
Fashionable Stamping Challenges : springtime

Thanks for dropping by today :)
