A Magnolia Thank You Meets Glimmer Mists

First of all let me appologize for the awful photo. No sunshine here in Northern Ohio and my Ott lights just don't seem to cut it! Best I can do for the moment.

This week was to make a card or something that says "Thank you" at Just Magnolia. Instead of usinging an image of Tilda or Edwin, I thought I would use these tulips, they are stunning. Wish you could see them IRL. Me thinks this might become my all-time favorite card! LOL

I have Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists that I use, but seldom say anything about them because my papers always seem to come out rumpled, however over the weekend, I was straightening up. (It is amazing what I found when I painted my room). Anyway I came across a little bitty craft iron and the light came one. Whilst my misted paper was damp, I ironed it and guess what? It was flat again. LOL...Talk about feeling stupid!

I misted plain white paper with Glimmer Mists, pink ink & candy apple red. Ironed it. Then stamped it with burgundy ink and a floral flourish from Paper inspirations. Stamped a heart from outlines rubber stamps, cut one section from that added white pearls to it , mounted my tulips, a bow and sentiment and the perfect card appeared. The sentiment is from stampin up along with the border punch. I attached the topper to very dark brown cardstock. Wish my camera would pick up all the glimmer and shimmer.
