For my card I used Flourishes Calendar Set 2 "Morning Glory!" I stamped the image on Metallic White Cardstock from Paper and More with Versamark and heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder from Ranger and colored with my Copic Markers. I then sponged around the image with SU's Almost Amethyst and added some tiny rhinestones. I cut the image and the background out with Spellbinders Labels 4. The background was glitter paper that I bought from Hobby Lobby...ya gotta love that paper! The DP also came from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment came from Flourishes "Many Sentiments" and it was stamped on Spellbinders Oval Nesties with Versamark and heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder from Ranger. The ribbon is 1.5 Silk Purple Ribbon, which I purchased at Flourishes called Violet.
My flower is simple...using Spellbinders Peony Nestabilities and Lavendar tissue paper in two sizes. I simply cut 6 of each size, put a brad through the middle and fluffed it up adding a little bling to the middle of the flower.

I hope you all enjoy this challenge as much as I have had putting it together. Have fun with it and enjoy!
