Craftmad May Card Swap - Handmade Flowers

This month over at Craftmad (Pinterest Album here) we are swapping two cards with Handmade Flowers.  I took my inspiration from the card I made on our NZ cruise.  I just love the way that vellum looked when used as a backer for a die cut and cut into flower shapes and layered up. I don't have the ornate dies that were used in the card that inspired be so I only layered one panel with vellum the others I added embossed white card stock.  The die I used was 

Nestabilities Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares Die.

My second card I saw some torn papers flowers and really like the effect.  So dragged out random scraps of paper and using water and paint brush drew circles on the papers then tore them out.  Layered them up and added a button to centre of each.  I found this perfect piece of flower patterned paper in my stash also.

Thanks for dropping on by.
