Something Shiny

So many great challenges this week I didn't know which one to choose, so I've had a go at combining three.  Unfortunately I wasn't quite quick enough to get it entered into the CASual Fridays one before the deadline.  (Doh - will be better organised next time!)  The two I'm in time for are:
The Shabby Tea Room - Week 119 Diamonds are a girls best friend ( white and silver with pearls / crystals)
Less Is More - Something Shiny

I used a white card blank and heat embossed (in silver) some flowers (from Stampin' Up Growing Green) in a kind of circle shape.  I stuck some shiny diamond gems in the centres of these.
Around the edge of that I used another Stampin Up flower stamp (from the Polka Dot Punches set) which I stamped in silver ink.
I placed a piece of acetate over the top with another Stampin' Up flower (this time from the Printed Petals set) for which I used some white pigment ink.  The acetate is stuck on with some 3D sticky pads to raise it off the card.  I rather like the shadow that the large white flower casts behind it - although it's a bit tricky to see in this photo!
Finally the sentiment was stamped in silver and I've placed some sheer/shiny white ribbon down the side to help disguise my sticky spots.
