I'm watching The Voice as I put up this post.   Those of you in the continental U.S. already know who the winner is but here in Hawaii we are several hours behind.   I'm cheering for Danielle to win....crossing my fingers and toes.   LOL

I thought this sentiment pretty much fits the challenge as contestants sang their hearts out to make their dream come true.

To give the flowers dimension, I used a craft molding mat and pressed the center of the flower using a stylus. Here's an angle shot showing the raised petals.  It sure makes the flowers look real.

Ingredients for this card:
Sentiment by Stampendous
Dies by Sizzix
Flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs from J's Knicknacks
DP from my stash
Flower punch by EK
Butterfly punch by EK
Pearls by Kaiser Craft
Distress Ink
Ribbon by Offray

I don't watch "The Voice" but I heard that it's fun to watch. I hope that Danielle your favorite won. :)

This card is perfect for what you were watching. I really like the sentiment and the layout of your cards. What a great idea to use a stylus to add dimension to the flowers.

Have a wonderful rest of your week.
