Countdown to Confetti: Sneak Peek Petals 'n Posies {post2}

Hello, friends:}

**Please click HERE for my Virtual Smooches blog post and video- ****GIVEAWAY.
**Giveaway details below
Today the Reverse Confetti DT is sharing a sneak peek for the Beautiful Banners and Petals 'n Posies stamp sets. Be sure to stop by the RC blog for more inspiration and details! And be sure to stop by all the RC DT blogs for your chance to win!!! Details below! 
 
If you know me.... you know I don't like flower images/etc. I just don't know what to do with them.... but I looooooove this RC Petals 'n Posies set! I love that it comes with matching dies too! It makes creating with flowers soooooo much easier! And that's why I used it on my cards today! LOVE LOVE LOVE

I created the following card for today for a friend who is having surgery soon. I wanted to use these leaves as a "wreath" for the sentiment. Well... not really a wreath, but something to make you focus on the sentiment. 

I used some vellum to stamp and die cut the leaves from the RC Petals 'n Posies set. And then I added the sentiment by embossing it with gold powder (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko). I finished the card off with some gold floss and some random Recollections charms. LOVE
But that wasn't enough for me.... I love this card but thought it was too plain. So I made another one but embossed the coral paper leaving a center oval plain (so I could stamp/etc on it). I think that these embossed dots made this card pop!  
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog for more inspiration and details! And stop by the RC Facebook page and "like" us!! **Be sure to check out the "comment to win" promotion on FB!
