Less is More 72...Shine!!

The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a clean and simple card with shine!!  I opted to use some gems to give my card some shine...
I used some gems from Martha Stewart, a flower die from Papertrey Ink, and a sentiment from Stampotique. Die cut the flowers, added sentiment, popped up on Bazzill gray card and adhered the gems.  Tried the gems on white, black...and a bunch of colors in between, but decided the gems looked best against the gray.  Sometimes you need to try some card colors "on for size" before you  pick a color!  The ink is gray, as well.  I do think, though, that phographing gems or shiny cards is super tough...the colors on this card look so much sweeter IRL...but you get the idea with the photo:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
