The Clockworks background was my starting point here. I stamped it, then wondered what embossing it would look like... and I liked it! I embossed the front of my card base too before attaching the stamped panel to it. I like to run my embossed images through the Big Shot again when I've embossed to get a less bulky, subtler look.
The card was ready for its focal point: I stamped flowers from Bloomin' Marvellous (you'll be able to get this set for free in the upcoming Sale-a-bration promotion!), fussy cut them and decorated each centre with a tiny punched flower and brad. These were arranged with some punched leaves over the background and the banner-style sentiment added.
Here's the fabulous colour combination I used from Inkspirational today. There'll be different inspiration each week apparently - colours, sketches, CASEs and photo inspirations, so this looks like a fun challenge to get your creativity flowing!
