TCC134 Beautiful Day

Hey peeps, it's Wednesday, and that means another gorgeous Card Concept challenge!  Julie floors me with the beautiful photo inspirations she comes up with!  This one is good for Mother's Day, or for any special occasion, really:

My mom is gone, so I thought I would use the challenge to make a thank you card, which I always need for my customers, and I thought it would be nice to use some soon-to-be-retiring products for my card today:

My "Classy and Elegant" card features the big floral from Beautiful Day, and I heat embossed it in Copper Embossing Powder, then lightly watercolored it with some Blushing Bride and Soft Seafoam  inks.  I also used the Bouquet Bunch dies to add some accent pieces.  I tucked some Rose Metallic thread behind it as well:

I tried to create a pretty watercolor background with some So Saffron and Petal Pink inks, but it didn't work quite the way I had planned, so I tucked it into my Tin Tile embossing folder at an angle, to give it a little more interest!  I also heat embossed a sentiment from Ornate Thanks on some Petal Pink cardstock diecut with the Stitched Rectangle dies:

and added a couple of sentiments on the inside as well, stamped in Copper (ret) and Petal Pink inks:

My inspiration came from the flowers as well as the copper picture frame and cups....what inspires you?  I hope you'll share your pretty creation at The Card Concept this week as well!  And I am going to enter this at the Always Fun Challenge this week as well, as they are looking for embossing folders!  Thanks for popping in today! 

You know you're tired when you fall asleep with your glasses on!  And check out that blanket!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Absolutely gorgeous card, LeAnne! I love all the different elements you used on this and the added texture from the embossing folder! I never thought to emboss a flower with Copper EP! I need to try that! Well done! What a precious picture of Miss Cassidy and that blanket is beautiful! :)

Your card is beautiful. I don't think I've ever used the dies with the Beautiful Bouquet set. Cassidy's blanket is awesome.

Those white lacy flowers tucked behind your big bloom are fabulous. What a lovely card LeAnne! Look at Miss C, so cute!
