Embracing My New Set



This card was so hard for me! I took it apart at least 2 times. I finally decided that it wasn't getting any better. Sometimes too much is TOO much. Anyways....early this week, I saw lauraly from SCS put crystal effects on these little flowers! I absolutely loved it so I thought I would give it a try. I also added stickles around the main flower after it was aqua painted. I do love how that all turned out! It was the rest of it that was a struggle. I really wanted this to be for the sketch challenge on SCS so I stuck with it but in hindsight this image would have been more stunning on a simple card. Oh, well! I do love this new dp that will make its way into SU! up and coming catalog! Can't wait to see it!!!
