Mixed Media Challenge

After some time visiting family in Ohio, and running a Hero Arts scramble over the weekend I have not done any card making...and it was difficult to get back to it.  Nevermind that I have at least 5 cards that need to be mailed within a week!  Well here is a start!
I am playing in a new to me challenge - The Mixed Media Card Challenge- the theme is flowers with an option of basket...well I love flowers and I kinda like this basket weave embossing folder a LOT! (thanks for introducing me to it Michele!)  So here is my take on the challenge.

I started by stamping the multi step roses, then I stamped the woodgrain on a separate piece.  I added some embossing paste colored with lime green glimmer mist using Simon Says Stamp leaves stencil.  While that dried, I dry embossed the basket weave panel, and worked on the sentiment panel.  Once my embossing paste was dry, I die cut the circle, added the fussy cut Altenew Vintage Roses and put the pieces together. The bow and pearls were added last (sticker from Jolee).

Thanks for stopping by!
