 Hi there. I saw the photo inspiration at Just us Girls Challenge and thought it was time to make a few Hydrangea cards.  Here are a couple of those cards...

I stamped the image with Karin Markers (again!) and blended with a brush. Although I have the dies, I actually fussy-cut this - not sure why? 
The small white panel was embossed with a die.

This time I die-cut the flower head from a smooshed background and then added more highlights with Zig markers. The die-cut flower stem was inked and embossed and then I fussy-cut the backing. The flowers border is made from the same set. The background was embossed with SU Subtle embossing folder. 
To finish I added all the pearls, stamped the sentiment and adhered to a black card base.
