More drama with a vellum bouquet

There is a meeting with my W.I.N.O.S. group tonight (women in need of stamps) and our challenge was to make a card using vellum.  I LOVE heat embossing pretty flowers onto vellum and fussy cutting them out.  I find it quite therapeutic.  Here is another bouquet that I put together after embossing onto a baby blue vellum that I have in my stash.  I thought it would look quite dramatic against the PTI Smokey Shadow cs.  The flowers are from 3 different sets...Mama Elephant "Summer Garden" for SSS, a SU 5 petaled beauty, long orphaned from her original set and a SSS set "Thinking of You".  The leaves are die cut from a sturdy PTI vellum cs with a very old Spellbinders die.  My inspiration is from this card that Lucy Abrams made this week.  Thanks Lucy for sharing all of your gorgeous and inspiring talent!  I am again linking up to the Time Out challenge.  This is my second cup!
Thanks for stopping in and I hope that you are having a great day!

  12. congrats on your honorable mention at "time out" - your card is so pretty - i love the name of your stamp group - i belong to a group too and think we might have to steal your name as we not only stamp but drink wine (after creating the card!!) and have snacks!!
