     I'm sure you're thinking..."oh no, she made another card using flowers...."!
     O.k., just hang in there with me for this one.  I promise it will be my last floral card for at least 5 postings!  I have a couple of images colored but not put together yet.
     My madness for this card was wanting to try a technique that Kim Teasdale posted here on the Flourishes blog to get a rich, shiny effect.  She embosses the image and then covers with Crystal accents.
     I tried this on the roses but not the leaves so I could see the difference.  The roses turned darker than I had colored but I'm pleased with the outcome.
     O.k., I promise 5 new postings that are not flowers!  
                                  Have a wonderful day!
