Thinking of you always - acetate card

Hello folks!  Here's another card made using the lovely flower stamp set 'Always Flowers' by Sheena Douglass.  I wanted this card to be bright and colourful, so I set about making myself a rainbow of flowers.
I stamped and embossed on to coloured card with white embossing powder, cutting out each flower, shaping and adhering to the acetate with a hot melt glue gun.  I added coloured rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.

I reached for the kraft card, embossed it using a crackle embossing folder.  I tore the edges and inked them before layering a up and adhering to the card... ooo yes I also tied some ribbon round the top layer of Kraft and added a bow.   The sentiment is stamped and embossed with white powder too.
I really should have photographed this one on a white background but I think you get the idea.
Thanks so much for your encouraging comments.  I really appreciate them.
Ciao for now!
