Heartfelt Flowers

Something romantic today, using an embossing folder and stamp set, that came free with a magazine.  It's not the highest quality folder, some areas emboss more deeply than others, but it is pretty, and, at 6x6 inches, it's big too, I matted the embossed piece onto a 7x7 blank.
I embossed onto white hammered card, then inked over with Old Paper and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks to pick up the pattern.  The matching stamp, I stamped into the middle of the embossed piece, which is left blank for this purpose, using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, I think it gives a nice vintage look on the hammered card.  I added a dotty border of gold Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue, tiny pink gems to the stamped element, and some Star Dust Stickles to highlight some ares of the embossing.
 The flowers were made with my Heartfelt Creations Arianna stamps and matching die set.  I stamped onto cream card with Worn Lipstick ink, sprayed the flowers with water to soften, then used a ball tool and my finger to shape the petals.  The leaves were made with a Marianne die.
