Simple Scrappy Card

Hi Everyone! I'm not very good with simple cards. I'm so accustomed to making multilayered cards and when I try to create a simple card, I always have this need to add things to it. This time I stopped myself. LOL! The main image is actually very 3D looking in person but the picture don't really reflect it. It looks better in person.

I don't know. . .what do you think of this card? I really had difficulties taking a picture of this card. The flower is metallic so whenever I took a picture of it, it would be overly reflective so I would pull back the lighting to take the picture. When I did that, the metallic flower looked nice but then the rest of the card was too dark and the embossed background didn't show very well.

Anyway, this was the best I could do. The stickers are by K&Co and the metallic flower is by Amanda Blu.

That card is beautiful! I like the embossing & the metalic flower & it has the right amount of color. Yes I want to know about how you did the embossing too? I luv the bigger polka dots!
