Both of your cards are just beautiful. I loved the softness of those pretty vellum florals. But that background was just a knockout. I do not own a lot of WOW embossing powders, but today, I have seen some that I just must own. Thank you so much for participating in this fun blog hop. Both of these company’s are awesome!
