For the base of my card I used an old Incire technique by Nelly Snellen:
The Incire cutting templates have various slit designs cut into the metal template. You make incisions in duo Color paper and then fold them over to give you a two-Color effect.
For this card I used the pink/white duo paper and the IC0037 template.
After cutting and folding the paper I weaved some beads through the folded pattern.
I used a punch to decorate the 4 corners and added Perga gloss on all the flowers.

You've keyworded this for today's challenge which is to spray or spritz ;-). But I'm glad I got to see it - the way you have added beading on top of the folded Incire looks amazing. And I love your little glazed jug of flowers.
