Twice Embossed Florets card

When I was working on cards for the Stamping 411 Challenge earlier this week I came up with this as one of the cards I designed.  I used the Square Lattice and the new Flower Garden embossing folders for the top 2 color blocks, and pretty paper from Beyond the Garden DSP for the bottom panel. The stamp set I selected is Fabulous Florets, available in the Summer Mini Catalog.
The circle for the focal point is punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch.  It was sponged on the edge and stamped with small florets and a sentiment.  The large  flower was heat embossed with Melon Mambo EP and shaded with a marker and an Aqua Painter.
Colors on this card are Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, and Melon Mambo.
I like how the DSP pattern picks up all of the colors on the card.
This stamp set has so many possibilities.  I hope you'll decide to give it a try!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for visiting!
