Thinking of you card 1

The background for my card is inspired by Jennifer McGuire's video on monochromatic layering.  I used the flowers and leaves from Hero Arts Layering Bird and Branch set. I used blue cardstock as my base, then stamped the solid images with Soft Navy ink covering the entire panel. Then I used Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink to stamped the layering images. I love how bright the white pigment ink is on the dark blue ink. I filled in the gaps with circles from Happy Stamp and Cut from Hero Arts. The background is beautiful. Thank you Jennifer for sharing this cool technique.
I then added a stitched frame layer  made using Stitched Rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. The  vellum leaves are from Simon Says stamp Clustered Leaves die. I them stamped the sentiment from Summer Garden stamp set using Soft Navy ink on a rectangle piece of white cardstock. I adhered the leaves behind the rectangle sentiment panel then adhered the panel using foam adhesives. Finally embellished with Pretty Pink Posh's Clear Droplets and Blue Lagoon iridescent sequins. Here is a closeup of the card.
