Wildflowers & Blooming Meadows

I have a birthday card and set of (almost) matching notecards to share today. For the card, I started by stamping my Hero Arts 'Blooming Flowers' in Versamark Ink on to a piece of paper from the 'Wildflower' pad by My Mind's Eye, then heat embossing it with white powder, before blending 'Peeled Paint' and 'Tumbled Glass' Distress Ink over the top. I inked around the edges using 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, and added a sentiment from a set by Papermania.


For the notecards, I simply cut pieces of paper from the same pad, inked around the edges using more 'Pumice Stone' ink, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, then added another sentiment from the same Papermania set.


Here's a shot of all of them:
