Three different techniques

This week challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is Pick Three Different Techniques.
The three techniques I used were dry embossing, distressing and make your own flowers.  The backing paper is vellum and I have embossed it using a my grand calibur and a A4 folder.  I distressed the vellum by tearing it round the edge and using distress ink.  The die cut and flowers were all cut using Marianne design dies and embossed.  The centers of the flowers are just flat backed pearls.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Stamping sensations  =  Embossing and Texture
