New Card for SSCC with LOTS of Bling!

Here is my latest creation, a birthday card for my 2nd daughter. Her B-day is not until the end of July so I just might use this for someone else and make her another. We'll see!

Like many of my cards I spent way too much time on this but did enjoy using a few techniques I learned recently. The pictures don't show how much Stickles I used but I put them on almost everything!
Janine, you'd be proud of me...I used my McGill tools to make the flower more of a "cup" so the petals would stand up a bit more. And then I creased the leaves with another of the tools! The purple lines on the flower (which is from a lavender set I got at StampingScrapping.com)I painted on with watercolors, just like you taught us! I like the effect. At the May Retreat Classes I got the Tim Holtz blending tool and I used that on the edges of the die cut and the leaves.
The embossed background is Cryogen White. I used the Sizzix folder called Snow Flowers. I was inspired by one of Anary's recent cards that had the 4 embossed panels behind the "image". Thanks, Anary!! Loved that card! The butterfly is a stamp from Inkadinkadoo. The little tag I made from a Verve square stamp, a generic sentiment stamp and Cindy's lacey circles set is where the tiny 1/2 flower is from. The ink is Studio G; the ribbon and rhinestones and DP are from my stash. I think that's everything!
I am entering this in the SSCC "Embossing Challenge" at:

Thanks again to all of you who leave sweet comments every so often! Sure enjoy hearing your thoughts!
Happy Monday!

On July 2 I was looking back at some old "posts" and realized I never checked to see who "won" this challenge. So I went to the SSCC site and was pleasantly surprised to see I was listed in the "Top Three"! Thank you, SSCC!!
