So I created this card using vellum for the vase and ink blended the back to add some color, I also ran it through the Big Shot with a polka dot embossing folder to add some texture. I die cut the flowers and leaves from Hammermill cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers and then added them to the vase. Everything was adhered to a scalloped rectangle with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. The front of an A2 cardbase was also embossed with the polka dot embossing folder and the scalloped rectangle was added with sticky back foam.
I showed it to my friend who said she liked it but it seemed a little bare on flowers. So today when I went to post the card I took a second look and agreed with Denise. I pulled out the dies and added a ton more flowers and really love the way it turned out. You can see both versions below.
