Extravaganza - Cards 3

This is the last group of cards that I created for my Extravaganza boards. The first one I really like because it is such a simple idea. It is just a bunch of flower petals layered and then some greenery behind. I have actually given this one away already and I dressed it up a bit by adding some additional greenery and some opaques, just for some additional emphasis.
The next card is one of the first I created and masking is not always easy when you are dealing with detailed stamps like this one.. I love the look of the Jute ribbon around the bottom of the card.
 The next card is one that I really like with all the layered flowers. A few pieces of Baker's Twine wrapped around the card and some Rosewood Mini-Medley pieces finish this off nicely. 
The last large card shows that even though this is Huntington paper, we don't always have to stick to the colour scheme... I stamped each flower in a bold colour of pigment ink and embossed it with Clear Detail Embossing Powder mixed with Prisma Glitter. The flourishes add that extra touch of shimmer. 
The last set of 4 cards are little, bitty cards. I had some extra space on my boards to fill and these fit the bill.They are each approx. 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.
