To my friend card

This card was featured today 5/21 on Impression Obsession stamps blog
This card was done as an experiment: no patterned paper card, 3 colors only, using background stamps to make some pattern, doing heart punched flower- just experimenting(all who knows me knows that I am not a card maker but a scrapper- I need space and lots and lots of layers and a huge title and some journaling- so card are just to try some techniques and than to take it to the pages.. )
But as always I found some challenges before I started and the first one was to do a card for a friend with IO stamps. I only have their 6*6 background ones- so I used 2 of them- leaves on black cardstock and heat embossing the white ink and than for the flower- with retro background and heat embossing too (colorbox white ink never dries)
I also used dry embossing folder with white cardstock and added some pearls on it (it was boring), cut a frame out of self made corrugated red paper with Spellbinders die and popped it with 3d foam glue dot. Then I did this flower with punched old book page, metal old tag, punched hearts and a brad. For the finish I used 2 Prima laces, one dotted ribbon, some cute buttons and a punched from a glitter cardstock tag. I was pretty out of my mojo for stamping the sentiment so I did it with small MM stickers.
I like the final result- also it's most probably will go for my own recycling- using the flower and the bow on the page- can't promise anything..
So now for the challenges:
IO stamp and for the friend card- for IO stamps challenge
