CSS Group Hop!!

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the second GKD CSS hop for March!!  You should have arrived from the wonderful Linda's blog, if not, be sure to head to Stamp TV to start from the beginning!!  
For this hop our challenge was to make a CAS card and the only embellishments we were to use needed to sparkle!!  Fun!!!  
I decided to use my Elegant Florals set, stamped with Memento Gray Flannel, coloring with Copics R00, R11, G40 and G43, cut the image and set it aside.  I used my oval mask over my panel and sponged Memento Angel Pink and Rose But, stamped the leaves in Gray Flannel, added the flower with pop dots over the leaves and added Yellow Stickles to the stamen and cut the stem at a bit of an angle to go along with the oval shape.  I was worried the yellow might be too much but I am happy with how it turned out and it isn't overpowering!
Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, April 2.
Next hop stop is the great Miesje!!
