Twofer Card Challenge #27: Flowers

Happy Twofer Day!  It's the 10th of the month and time for another Twofer Card Challenge.  This month our focus is flowers, so using a flower stamp, die, or stencil on two cards, for two different occasions, and two totally different designs.  My flower of choice are actually the second layer of three flowers from Altenew's Stunning Cosmos:
On a piece of shimmer pink cardstock, I heat embossed the second layer of the Cosmos flowers and their stems with silver embossing powder and fussy cut them out.  I added a gem to the two with centers and arranged the flowers vertically with the stems coming from the left side of the card.  The sentiment, from the same stamp set, was also heat embossed on a strip of the shimmer pink cs, and layered with two silver on silver papers from my scraps.
I used all the layers of the flowers and stems on this friendship/thank you card.  I stamped the layers with Catherine Pooler ink and arranged them in the middle of the card, over an ink blended center.
I hope you will join us this month over at the Twofer Card Challenge!  Please hop over there for much more inspiration from our guest designer, Cindy Beach, and from the team.
