Parchment Technique

Today our challenge at Sweetstamps was to use the Parchment technique.
This is my first attempt. There is a great tutorial here.
I worked with the Wild Rose Oval stamp, which is an awesome stamp.
I also stamped Happy Birthday inside the oval because I felt it needed something.
I stamped the image with SweetStamps white ink and embossed it with detail white embossing powder onto heavy weight vellum.
For the background I used an embossing folder: Daisy and Swirls.
I embellished the embossed flowers with Kaisercraft pearls. All supplies are available at SweetStamps.
