Fun Easter images with textured backgrounds and 3D embellishments

Another couple Easter cards!!!
I started with a very elegant digital Easter greeting which I laser printed, trimmed and layered onto coordinating cardstock.  I found a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper and glued it to my black card front.  I used punches to create these little flower embellishments to finish off my card.  I used silver brads to combine a pink sequin, a light pink and a dark pink flower punchie.  I punched some light green feathery leaves (MS) and adhered them to the back of my flowers using double sided tape.  I glued my focal element to my card front and then glued the flowers around it.  It still needed a bit of something so I used my pattern tracing wheel to add some paper piercing to the card front in between my elements.  I was careful to not pierce too deep as to not damage my black card front and I think it adds a lot of interest and texture to my card!!  Perfect!!
For my second cards I started with this very bright floral digital image (Pixabay) to which I added a font greeting before laser printing it.  I layered it onto dark pink cardstock and went looking for a coordinating piece for my background.  I found this beautiful yellow piece, embossed it and added the green gros grain ribbon before I mounted this large element to a dark brown card.  I mounted my focal element above the ribbon and thought that it needed just a bit of something so I created a little flower 3D embellishment that coordinated.  I used a dark brad and layered on a yellow sequin, a dark pink flower punchie and added ribbon leaves to the back using double sided tape.  I cut a piece of dark pink ribbon, folded it and used the brad from the flower to adhere it to my card front over the green ribbon.  That worked very well!!
