For this week's WTUI challenge from Toni ~ WT492 Glazed Over .
I was able to combine this with Amber's challenge to the CCEE Stampers; this week, as she is seeing her oldest off to college she has asked us to make goodbye cards - goodbye, bon voyage, sympathy... Since there's not one single sympathy card in my stash at the moment, that's the option I chose.
I stamped the lilies and coloured them with pencils, then embossed. I added some little dots of Glossy Accents to some of the dots, and then sponged the edges and highlighted them with a gold pen. I cut and embossed the sentiment and attached it with two pearl brads.

Oh my Sabrina but this is a lovely card....the sponging looks so pretty with the gorgeous flowers... also the addition of the glossy accents on the dots is such a wonderful touch to make your card so beautiful....love it...

I really like what you did with your glossy accents...you wouldn't think that something shiny would look right on a solemn card but you sure made it work. That flower image is lovely....really well done.
