Cure for the winter blues take 2

I used a Stampin up embossing folder.

This is a close up of the flowers I hope this helps you to see better how I attached the flowers.
This is take 2 of Moxie Fab's Cure for the winter blues challenge. I love this flower set from Raisin Boat Stamps Stunning Silhouettes # 10062  I go to this set when I want to do a water color effect. This time I used Momento ink markers and colored directly on the stamp with the light blue and then colored right on top of that with the darker blue in the centers with a scribble style, do the stems the same was.I misted the water color paper first and then stamped on it with the colored stamp.( pretty water color effect with out a lot of work.I then stamped a few more and let them dry.I die cut the stamped flowers with a spellbinders die. I punched out the smallest flowers on the Martha Steward flower punch centering the center of the stamped flowers.( you do not have to be perfect with this as you will see as you go along.) I then used a quicky glue pen and put dots on the stamped image where the flowers are and added the punched flower on top of them.When I was done with this I added the pretty blue pearls from Kaiser Kraft in the centers of the flowers.Love how this turned out!!! I embossed the card I die cut with and Accucut die, added the different layers I die cut with spellbinders dies and I also distressed the edges of them with a making memories distresser.Everything was attached with a scotch easy glide adhesive  tape runner and the die cut stamped flower was attached with pop dots.The brad and paper are from My Mind's Eye.
I think this will be my Mom's Mothers Day card. ( Don't tell her!) They don't have a computer so I can't imagine she will ever see this.
I had so much fun creating this card I hope you like it and it inspires you to play with your punches too.
