the roses card

For this card I used the Rose Flurries 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) . For all the flowers I used the Shades of Purple cardstock set and for the leaves the two darkest shades of Green Meadow.

For the lovely detail in the background I used the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

the wild rose card

For this flower I used the Wild Rose 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the flower I used the Summer Afternoon gradient cardstock set and for the leaves the Green Meadow.

For the background I used the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) which adds a beautiful detail and is my favorite out of all the cover dies.

the peony card

For this gorgeous flower I used the Peony Dream 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the flower I used the Cherry Blossom Gradient cardstock set and the Sea shore for the leaves.

For this background I used the Party Banner Die Set( ALTN | SBC ) to create an interesting layer.
