"Let your dreams take flight" Floral Card

Hi all, 

This is my card made for Lulupu Challenge #18 - Load it up

I have also Made a video tutorial on making Easy Paper Gardenias, Do check it here

I have made a typical floral card. A Floral card is what I always prefer for loved ones, making my own flowers and gifting it as a card gives soo much happiness to me. 

To tell about this  card, it has so many layers and embellishments,,.. 

The base is an inked layer, the 2nd layer of white CS is also inked. 3rd The layer is of embossed card stock and I have inked it using Distress Inks giving a double shaded look. I don't know if someone has done it, this idea just came to my mind when inking the embossed CS. I used two colors to give a gradient  shade look, where these two colors where the ones I used in the flowers. (Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar) and the last layer is the decorative diecut with the sentiment saying "Let your dreams take Flight". I used this sentiment having in mind my close friend who got engaged last week. Wish I could send this to her all the way to India. 

Embellished with Handmade Gardenias, daisys, glittered flourishes , gems swirls, enamel dots and ribbons. 

The Gardenias and Daisys where made with the Digital Die cut, using my KNK Zing. The Cut Design was from a anonymous user from MTC library.

Hope you liked my card.
