Vellum flowers

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

My card today was inspired by two of my Docrafts friends Miella and June. In my early days of crafting I used flower punches and stamps a lot, and vellum. I have so enjoyed travelling back in time LOL. Miella and June have been using some beautiful flower stamps which I just had to buy and this card is the result!

The flower stamps are from Honey Doo Crafts, the leaves at the top are from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the one at the bottom are from Crealie Craft designs.
I stamped the flowers onto very pale pink vellum with Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, then heat embossed with SU White Pearl translucent powder, then handcut them.
In my stash, I found a small piece of graduated green vellum which I used for the leaves.
I cut ther ovals using Spellbinders pierced oval dies.
Little Martha Stewart flutterby covers a nasty ink blot, otherwise that corner would have been blank LOL.
Sentiment stamped with ?
Clear gems colours with Copic marker pen.
White card is my usual linencard and the card size is 7x5.
I have really enjoyed my trip back to my early crafting days and will be making 
some more :o)

Im in awe with all your stunning vellum flower cards. Do I dare buy a set (if in U.S.) and cut by hand. Think it would be worth it for sure.
