My Mom's Simple Wishes

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 271 - Vellum Embossing. For my color combo I used last Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 268 - Old Banana Ballet. I chose flower images and primas for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 65 - May Flowers and TOTALLY STAMPALICIOUS - Flower Power. I used 2 sets both from TREEHOUSE STAMPS - My Mom, Simple Wishes. Both sets have recently been added to the Digital Line now available. I stamped the flower images in barely banana then then stem and leaves in old olive and the centers and sentiment in ballet blue. After this dryed I turned the vellum over on a mouse pad and traced around the images with stylets. I popped the vellum up on top of old olive then punched out some ballet blue holes from the large side of my crop-a-dile and used them as faux brads to cover the pop dots. I colored the primas with my SU matching markers and attached them together with a banana large brad and added some ballet blue dots to match the flowers. Hope my MIL likes this.
