Pastel Flower with Doily Background

Soft pastels for a flower card.  The embossed doily detail adds a background texture.  I like the layered flower shapes together - similar but not identical in their eight-petal curves.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) sweet blush (pink), aqua mist (light aqua), Hawaiian shores (medium aqua), and vintage cream.
  • Dies are Lifestyle Crafts nesting petals (I used the 5 smallest dies), PTI double-ended banners, and Elizabeth Craft love.   Also PTI Parisian lace doily die is embossed into the base layer.
  • The flower center is made with a 1/4" hole punch.
