Sugared Blossom

This is for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on The challenge for today was to "paint" on your card, and anything that is not a stamp pad or sprays ink qualifies as "painting". For this card, I tried something new... First I punched the petals and leaves with the Blossom Builder Punch from Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade cardstock, then stamped them with the Build-a-Blossom stamp set in Concord Crush and Always Artichoke. Next I mixed Crystal Effects with a little water, then stirred in Dazzling Diamonds. Finally, I "painted" the mixture onto the petals & leaves before assembling the flower on the card. I also used Confetti stamp set to stamp the leaves on the background, and the {friend to friend} sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. For the finishing touch, I added 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Wisteria Wonder. TFL!
