Completed for the IC39 challenge, it took me forever to finally called this card "done." i had fun experimenting with Twinkling H20s... what fun they are! the colors of the flowers are much richer IRL. i love how unpredictable the result is. i stamped many many of them to get some that i liked.
i feel like this card is missing something tho. i couldn't find a metallic copper colored pen ANYwhere! anyone know of one? watercolors wouldn't take to the finish on the preprinted green paper.
i also looked everywhere for some copper colored organza ribbon and couldn't find any. so i finally just settled on the copper brads. ho-hum!
anyone have any suggestions? thanks!

It's a great card. I'm a big ribbon fan, if I feel something is missing I always add ribbon and it usually does the trick.
Very interesting layout. It took a minute for me to realize the square in the middle of the card isn't a card on it's own. For some reason I thought the background was a table or something the card was laying on. Once I saw that it was the BG, it really popped out at me!!

I really like your card. I enjoy TWH2Os too. I like the brads, they give your card a taylored crisp look. Copper cord or wire could add to it, but I think the brads keep it balanced since everything is centered.
