This was not the idea in my head when I started out. I was originally planning a one layer card but as is the way with card making - some times things change.


I wanted to use the back of the floral images to add color to the flowers but they weren't solid so I had to use a little bit of tape runner to get them to stick to the block. I'm not sure what the style is called - maybe abstract - but I love the look of the messy ink.


 I wasn't liking the stems so much, that's when I decided to die cut the stitched rectangles and raise one up. Originally I was going to add a different sentiment along the bottom or the side but with the new layers I opted for one of my favorites - white embossing on black card stock.
I'm not much of a 'bling' kind of card maker but I did add a few sequins to finish it off. 

You can check out the whole process in this video or click here to watch it on YouTube.
