Flower Cards

So glad to have my laptop back after routine maintenance.  I have 3 cards to share--each different but all with a flower.
To start, here's my PTI MIM entry with a stitched stem, felt bloom & die cut leaves.  I had so much fun making this card! 
The Tag Along Holiday die cut is one Vikki gave me when we met in person.  The bloom die cuts are Corner Adorner: February, the leaves are Fancy Foliage Details, the sentiment is from Trendy Tree Tops & the background stamp is from BG Basics: Text Style.  I used New Leaf Cardstock & lightly brushed blue ink on the tag before adding the bloom with a very old button brad.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Edited to add: Also entering Inspired by All the Little Things thanks to Darnell's suggestion.

Next is a card using Poppystamps Stitched Blooms that were left over from This Card.  I used Spellbinders Squares & Lacy Squares to make the black frame. 
Fun to use twine for the stem & the sweet die cut leaves (thank you, Ros!)  A W&W border stamp made the black & white edge on the card front & I mounted the panel with thin fun foam.  I'm entering Poppystamps, Double D & SSS Wednesday.

I've been wanting to try Rose Gold with navy, so that's the basis of my last card.  I embossed a scrap of cardstock with SSS Rose Gold embossing powder & die cut the Memory Box Arianna Sprig solid piece from it. 
The outline was die cut from a navy scrap & luckily I had enough to also die cut a mat using AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop.  The sentiment from Poppystamps Grateful Heart was embossed with the Rose Gold powder--just love it, especially on the off-white cardstock.  The look of the embossing changes as you tilt it in the light.  
I've always loved pearls & still have tons, which fortunately includes the navy ones I used here.  I'm entering Memory Box & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  7. All three are so pretty and so different from each other. Love the black and white with a pink flower. Great idea to use the little flower on a tag, then on a card. I have a hard time with little stamps. The navy with rose gold is really striking.

  11. Greta your cards are a fabulous bouquet of blooms. Your stitched stem is perfect, and those stitched petals on your black and white are so cute along with that black and white twine. Love. YOur navy and rose gold combo is so pretty, I'll have to remember that.

  13. Great job, Greta! I especially like the first card with its bright colors, the text background and the soft felt blooms! The bright pink floral is so sassy with its chic black & white adornments. Card #3 shows off that die wonderfully!

  16. All three floral cards are beautiful, Greta, while each being very different. Your added details to #1 make it very unique. Bright Pink and black on white is so striking on #2. And, last but certainly not least, card #3 is gorgeous with the Rose Gold Embossing and dark navy card stock.

  20. Your beautiful flower cards are a feast for my eyes because everything is white again outside... I am especially intrigued by your die cutting a solid embossed piece. I thought it would maybe crumble or something but it looks fabulous!
