Embossed Flower Card for Lawnscaping Embossing Challenge

I created this embossed flower card for the Lawnscaping Embossing Challenge .  I began by dry embossing the yellow flower, sanding the raised edges and then cutting the flower from the cardstock. I used white embossing powder as a way to add highlight in the flower center. I cut the leaves from embossed paper, inked the raised portion with green ink and used an embossed mat (Core'dinations).  To pull the colors together, I used red chalk lightly on the flower petals and used it more heavily in the center around the white.  The buttons were adhered with pop dots and I used red wire for the stitching in the center of each.

Thank you for visiting!
