Glittery Flower Thanks

I made this card for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #14 - Glitzy Glue Dots. I used Technique Tuesday watercolor crayons to color the flower and I added a medium glue dot to the center of the flower and used yellow-gold glitter on it, then I used smaller glue dots on each of the petals and used crystal glitter (a little hard to see in the picture). I'm kind of into drawing my own freehand outlines these days so I did it again on this card with a black Stampin Write Marker. I was inspired to use these colors by a flower that was painted on the lamp on my bedside table in Mexico. Thanks for taking a look!

Here's my card. 

1. Card stock - Whisper White (Stampin Up)
2. Watercolor Paper (Papertrey Ink)
3. Stamps - Layered Flowers (Hero Arts), Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches)
4. Ink - Black (Memento) Marker - Black (Stampin Up)
5. Glitter (Martha Stewart)
6. Watercolor crayons (Technique Tuesday)

1. Create card from white card stock - finished size 5 x 5
2. Stamp flower on watercolor paper, color with watercolor crayons and go over with a damp brush 
3. Allow stamp to dry and add medium glue dot to middle of flower and add glitter, then add smaller glue dots to each petal and add crystal glitter
4. Cut out flower and add to card with foam tape
5. Stamp sentiment
6. Draw freehand border
