Iced Flowers

I made this easy card a while ago, but it works for Sharon Johnson's challenge from last Friday, which was to use glitter. The "white" cardstock is shimmery cryogen white Curious (it's not a bright white AT ALL, I was disappointed) from cutcardstock.com. I colored the Pretties flowers with my lavender and eggplant inkpads, ran them under water for just a few seconds to lighten them, and heat set them very carefully. I then smashed them in versamark and Iridescent Ice EP and heated again. I scored 4 lines 1/4" apart on the base and attached the flowers with Mono Multi, added a half-back pearl (I know it doesn't really match my "white" cardstock), and added the sentiment in eggplant.
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Paper Tray (PTI)
paper - shimmery cryogen white (Curious)
ink - lavender, eggplant, versamark
acc - II EP, Pretties kit
