Flowers and dry embossing

This is one of my favorite stamps, a rubber wood mounted one from Penny Black. I stamped with white ink on kraft before I stamped a second time with lavender ink for the flowers and green for the leaves. The vase is stamped on grey paper, fussy cut and mounted on foam. Sentiment is also from Penny Black. For the dry embossed part I wanted to create a table cloth. So I used my sizzix big bird embossing folder and used the bird's chest and stomach region to make the table cloth. To the right of the card you can see the ef used.

This card is for
Less Is More - #365 CAS Dry Embossing
Crafty Cardmakers - #206 FLORAL DELIGHT
