The flower is actually part of a border that I cut out and then used pastel chalk to create the variation in colors that you can see (around the edges and at the base of the flower). I also added the glitter.
The red balls you see were something I had around the house. Can you guess what? Old Mardi-Gras beads!! I simply cut apart the beads and adhered them to the card. I love the shininess they add as well as the dimension!
I looked and looked to see if I could find and give credit to the person I downloaded the sentiment from. It is one I got before I started keeping track, I love that sentiment and use it often, I just wish I knew where it came from :( If it is you, please, please let me know so I can go back and give you credit on cards I have posted using it.
