Bridal Shower Card

I'm going to a bridal shower tomorrow and wanted to make a special card for the bride-to-be who. I pulled out my Hero Arts "Blessings" and "Congrats and Happy" stamp and cut sets for the sentiments and used gold embossing powder to stamp and emboss the Hero Arts Florals Magnolia flower. I colored it with my Ohuhu Honolul alcohol markers.

For the background, I stenciled Hero Arts' Daisy Mosaic stencil with some yellow pigment ink to create a bright, summery background. Then I stamped and cut out the sentiments. I used the "blessings" die to cut some blue adhesive foam so that it would stand out a bit. I also popped up the magnolia on foam tape to give it some dimension. The butterflies are from SU!'s Butterfly Brilliance dies. 

For the inside of the card, I cut a panel of white card stock and stamped "Congratulations" in the middle using Hero Arts' "Congrats and Happy" set. Then I added another butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance dies.
