I decided to keep the card Clean and Simple. A piece of gold foiled cardstock was adhered to the card base. A panel of Irresistibly Yours DSP was sponged with ink and wiped clean with a tissue, fussy cut along one edge, then adhered to the card base. A panel of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock was cut with a die to get a quilt diamond cut design then sponged with ink along the edges. A piece of craft foam was adhered to the back and then it was added to the card. The craft foam pops the panel up from the surface and gives it depth. Three gold gems were adhered to the card.
Three large floral images were punched from vellum and sponged with color, then three smaller floral images were punched from vellum and sponged with color. The petals were curled with a bone folder, adhered with glue dots, then a single floral punch from gold foil paper was adhered to the center. The inside was decorated with a single punched floral image from the Irresistibly Yours paper and a piece of gold foil for the flower center.
