Twine flowers with metallic background

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying warm in the winter weather, our winter seems to be delayed this year, still very pleasant. Usually by December we are covered in a layer or 2 at least. I am enjoying as much as I can, not a big fan of winters ;)

This is the current daytime view, beautiful isn't it? The 3 glittery buildings are the Galaxy Casino&Hotel. The nights are more gorgeous when you live in a casino city ;) This is the view I mostly see all day along, love looking at the golf course. The mountains are part of China, and the bridge goes to China as well.

I was able to sit down for some crating, as it seems to be a free day today. I made a one layer card. I made the twine flowers yesterday night, and used it with festive berry distress ink to stamp. Then I masked the flowers and dabbed the embossing ink pad on the card surface, with a light hand, and used glittery gold embossing powder to heat emboss it. I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle - handwritten notes, also added a die from Paper Smooches. Forgot to mention, I did color the flowers very gently with color pencil, and added rhine stones for flower centers.

I used a double sided tape, and then spread the twine around to create a flower.

Entering with my humble flowers here, will surely add a card or 2 more, since I do lots of flower cards.

Even though it is a one layer card, I had used, twine to stamp, emboss, and stamp, and used die cut to make this card.
