Vellum flowers on Wood.

Hi everyone, it's been a hectic few weeks so haven't had a chance to do much crafting.
I had these elements sitting in my scrap box so thought I'd put a quick card together, so I could play along in a few challenges.

At Simon Says Stamp Monday you need to use your favourite tool. Mine is my heat gun.
I've used clear embossing powder on the woodgrain stamp, and gold on the flowers. I still love watching the powder melt after all these years lol!

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday it's fantastic florals.
I've stamped, embossed and fussy cut a vellum layer over a white layer. It gives a softer look than just using white card.

At Addicted to CAS the theme is wood.
I had a few cut strips from this woodgrain stamp that I pieced together. Cutting the strips meant I could ink the edges more.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's a clean and simple week.

Finally, at The Card Concept there is this gorgeous pic for inspiration.

I was inspired by the brown white and gold colours and the texture of the wood.
I think my card fits the clean and simple category, or maybe clean and layered.

Thanks for visiting,

That gold on black is beautiful. The gold on the flowers really set them off. I hope your hectic was good, not stressful.
