Embossed Floral tag

Hi everyone, it's Mother's Day here on Sunday so I'm looking forward to a day of relaxing, doing whatever I want! (We'll see what happens lol)

I stamped 2 of these Penny Black flowers, fussy cut the centre from one and popped it up on the other to add dimension. I coloured them with a deep rose inktense pencil.
The texture on the base card was done with a Papertrey Ink impression plate. I think the sandwich in my Bigshot Plus was wrong but I love the subtle effect.

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

My greenery is diecut from a scrap of white card coloured with distress ink.Using  snippets means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

I have to use the same words as others Cathy as they sum this lovely card up perfectly - PRETTY!! Love that very 3-D flower and such a lovely idea to add it and the sentiment onto a tag.

It's lovely to see you in the Playground!
