Textured Just a Note Card

The large flower has had some IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Angel Pink and Rose Bud added to the edges to add more depth to the already pink petals.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers and has been popped up on
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® foam dots.
