You Are... Backyard Blossoms 6x6 Card

Happy Friday!  I have a beatiful 6x6 card for you today featuring Heartfelt Creation's Backyard Blossoms and my favorite Coneflower Stamp Set.  I used Memento inks to blend my flowers using finger daubers because they blend seemlessly and highlight easily.  I also used several die cut layers to add texture and dmension.  To add a little bit of shine and interest I added a few sprigs of gold metallic card stock, and Tattered Angels glimmer mists.  I am including the full instructions on how I made the card if you should have questions please ask.  I hope you like the card as much as I do!
