I chose another Basic Grey dp, which changed the colors. I used a layer of vellum over the dp to soften the colors a bit. On 2x2 vellum squares, I sponged green on one, pixie on one, passion on one, and vanilla craft ink on another. I punched the flower layers from these and added some dazzling diamonds for sparkle. I didn't have matching wide organdy, so I wrapped the narrower pink around the card twice. I didn't have glittery brads, so I used heat and stick powder and microbeads to make my own.
The one thing I'm not completely happy about is the word "love." Black was too harsh, but I couldn't find the right ink or technique for that. It's heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds.
