Flourish with Flowers

Hi everyone and Happy Memorial Day to ya!



My card today doesn't really have anything to do with Memorial Day, but it's a card I wanted to show you. The stamp was illustrated by my friend Jami Bova and you can get it at 2 Red Bananas. It's heat embossed in Ranger Gold Tinsel EP (has to be THE most sparkly EP I've ever worked with!), watercolored with reinkers, and her wings were painted with Candle Light Shimmerz. The Gold scalloped mat and mat behind the DP is Metallic/Mica Gold from the Paper Temptress. I'm tellin' ya...this is one sparkly and shimmery card!

Here's a close-up. The main image, scalloped mat behind it, and the largest gold mat on the card base are all up on foam tape:
