Brads, Gems or Dew Drops

The Southern Girls Challenge this fortnight is to use Brads, Gems or Dew Drops. It was my intention to use all three but I couldn't find my dew drops so I had to settle for brads and gems. The international challenge sponsor for this challenge is Wild Orchid Crafts, Woohoo!!! I only wish I could have entered the challenge. lol
This card has a lot of dimension. The heart I used was cut out of chipboard. I then covered it with a black paint dabber, Perfect Pearl powder and set it with Forever Red Perfect Pearl Mist. I know, a lot of work for something I was just going to cover up but I think it added to the look of the card. The flowers, of course, are from Wild Orchid and I inked the edges of the outside flowers with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I also placed a small crystal in the center of each flower.

Challenges I'm putting this card in:
Sweet Stamps - Flowers
Bunny Zoe - Flowers Everywhere
Lexi's Creations - Flowers
Creative Cowgirls - Hearts
Crafty Calendar - Love
Mami Doodles - Flower Card
The Stamp Man - Hearts Theme
