It's my turn to host the Friends of Flourishes design team challenge. The challenge is to use embossing (wet or dry).
For my card, I used a woodgrain embossed background. The image is a digital image from Flourisheslc set called Tweeting Friends and the sentiment is from the Flourisheslc Heartfelt Words digi set.
Be sure to visit the Friends of Flourishes Design Team for a lot more inspiration
You can find this stamp set and a lot more at theFlourisheslc online store.

I have an easy, yet elegant floral card to share with you here and on the Dies R Us Blog. The saying goes, April Showers bring May Flowers and today I'm sharing a card created with that saying in mind.
My card is 5x5 square top fold. I selected designer papers, ribbon, adhesive half-pearl, and one of my DIY stick pins from my stash and then proceeded to create using Cheery Lynn dies as noted below.
I then shaped the flowers and leaves using my favorite stylus tool and glue:
After shaping the blooms I inked the edges of the flower and also inked
the center of the doily:
Here is a close up of the shaped and inked die cuts:
It's fun to create an elegant card to give to someone special at anytime of the year, just because!
Cheery Lynn dies used from the Dies R Us online store:
