I generally use images of people, so I thought I would change it up and use a floral instead. I tried a few new things on this card. The first is the cracked glass technique ~ I have always wanted to do it, but never tried it until now ~ I thought it would be good for a vintage feel. The second new thing I tried was making my own flower ~ I really like how it turned out! However, I cannot see actually mailing a card with one of these on it since it sits very high up. The pin is from my collection of vintage items and I added 3 vintage beads to it before placing it behind the flower. The edges of the DP are distressed and then sponged with creamy caramel ink.
