Fuschia card

I have made these fushia using a Cheery Lynn die. I have die cut the elements in purple and pink and manipulated the elements with an embossing tool. I have put stamens through the centre of the flowers and coloured the ends of the stamens with a pink marker. I had started making these flowers a couple of months ago for my Mother-in-law because she loved flowers. Unfortunately my Mother-in-law passed away before I had the opportunity to make a card with them for her. So I have made this card to take to the cemetery.

I have used a 5x7in card and cut an oval out with a Presscut die. I cut a purple piece of card to size and then cut an oval out of the purple card using a larger die out of the nesting set. I have added the flourish, die cut with a Cheery Lynn die and then attached the flowers to the flourish using my glue gun. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a die from The Works.
