The wonderful sticker selection that is available can spruce up any card in short order. I love these hologram flowers from Ecstasy Crafts. There are 192 assorted flowers on one sheet of stickers. It is so easy to add colour with any permanent marker (Sharpie, Copics, Spectum Noir). In the card below, we have die-cut a framed circle and added an Impression Obsession branch to hold the flowers. If you look through your stash, I guarantee that you will find a branch or a scroll that will work well as a base for these tiny flowers. The card was made from the printed purple cardstock shown. Once embossed, we sanded the raised scrolls which allowed the white reverse side to show through. This is a technique to consider when you have printed paper or solid coloured paper with a white background. It can create quite an effective pattern with the white showing through.

Love the embossing. The die cut in the photo is good because it has close cuts if you just want a hint of colour. Some of my older dies aren't that 'close'....hummm...I may need more dies.... :)
