The Flower Challenge #72 - Reminder

There is still time to make a sparkly card for The Flower Challenge.  Just remember that flowers have to be the focal point of your card.

I went in a totally different direction with my reminder card.  I wanted  you to see there is more than one way to add sparkle to your card.

I did use a die cut flower again, the Peony from HoneyBee.  I thought the pink papers really popped on the dark gray card base.  I saw Nichol Spohr use Distress Foundry Wax on a flower and knew I needed some to gild my flowers too.  You can see Nicole's cards here.

Will you make a sparkly card for our gallery?  We'd love to see you there.
