Pink Flowered Thank You

Would you believe this card took me most of the day to complete?  Rarely does that happen but two of the elements had to dry thoroughly before proceeding with the next step.  What doesn't show up well in the photo is the sparkle to the swirls and the crackle to the flower.

To the modeling paste I added some Holographic Embossing Powder then, applied it to the stencil for my background.  Over the flower image, I added a layer of Distress Crackle Paint to give the pink flower and the lavender wash a bit of interest.

It was a fun card to make even though it was a long process, I really like the way it turned out.  In between wait time, I watched a movie, did some chores and chatted on Facebook.  Life is good!
