💗Welcome to a very special PIP Challenge! Usually our challenges are anything goes, but when a Monday falls as the 5th Monday of that month . . . . . . Theme music please!! 
Monday May 29th's design challenge is BLOOMS!!! 
Di's Digi's thought this was a great idea too & is sponsoring our prize this week ~ click the link to check them out & if you're in the mood drop them a note of thanks for sponsoring our PIP Challenge :)

Interpret it how you like, think outside of the box if you dare!  For me, I went literal ;) I am also in love with these wonderful stamps From Unity Stamp Co.
I loved the idea of the framing the ghost image behind the gold embossed heart so I stamped (embossed in black) & water colored the shoe image and then on vellum I embossed and colored the gold heart w/flowers making sure of placement before I trimmed.

In the heart of the flower I used prismatic glitter and a few bronze/gold flakes. They really catch the light!

I mounted the vellum right up against the image using a thin double stick tape which does double duty as a soft border and left some overhang on the vellum for another border affect on the dark blue.

"Missing you lots" sentiment is embossed in pale blue on a Spellbinders die cut click to go to one of my FAVORITE discount retailers!!    

Another blossom is my oldest daughter whom inspired this card!  A teen whose left home & blooming in the big city.  As graduation draws near I was thinking a card like this might touch the hearts of a lot of parents out there 💗💗💗
