Drop Shadow Die Cuts

Seems like it's been forever!  :)  Glad to be crafting and posting again!  Today's card is so not my normal layered creation.  It's VERY busy.....but that may even be in a GOOD way.....the jury's still out!  This card is for the Make It Monday #151, Drop Shadow Die Cuts Challenge over at Papertrey Ink.

I used the Lovely Layers stamp and die sets as well as the Ruby Reprise stamp set, available from Papertrey Ink.  The larger flowers were cut with the dies, once in white and stamped in color, and then the bottom layer, the 'shadow' was cut in a deeper corresponding color.  They were layered together just a tad off center, to create the shadow.  Then I stamped leaves and smaller flowers all over the base card stock.  A few Copic colored adhesive pearls added to some of the flower centers and done.  It's quite busy.....BUT I kind of like this wild look.  Totally out of my comfort zone here.

So I guess my advice from this creation would be, try something new....something different, you may just be pleasantly surprised! 

Thanks for stopping by, appreciate you doing so.

Have fun and enjoy!
