Carnations, Pinks, Sweet Williams

Diantus - carnations, Pinsk, Sweet Williams.  I love them all.  Such a sweet scent and easy to grow.  For this card I used a Carnation from a Penny Black clear stamp set.
Some of the other products I used can be found at the Dies R Us Store.

I started with embossing a piece of white card stock using the Darice Quatrefoil Double embossing folder.   After embossing, I very softly sponged a bit of Celery Green onto the raised portions of the embossed panel.
After coloring the carnation with copics, I cut it out using Elizabeth Crafts Designs Stitched Ovals,
tracing and hand cutting the pink layer and then cutting out the green oval with another ECD oval in the set.

The last die I used is the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.
That is is for today.  Thanks for looking.
