For my card, I went with the new pre-colored Cala Lilies with Sentiments set.  I printed the image on matte photo paper so that the colors were very brilliant.  Next, I ran the image through a Xyron sticker machine, burnished and removed the protector sheet.  I covered the sticky surface with You're So Fine Diamond Clear Cool Hightlight glitter from The Rubber Cafe.  I burnished the glitter into the tape and then fussy cut the flower.
 
To finish my card, I popped the floral image up on foam tape on a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Die that I pierced for some added interest.  The embossing folder is Trendy Braiding by cArt-Us and is available at CropStop. (use the coupon code CTMP-2 for a 10% discount on your ENTIRE CropStop PURCHASE!!)
 
On Your Special Day is a sentiment from the Cala Lilies with Sentiments set.  I kept all cardstock and mats white for an elegant feel. 
 
Your secret word on my blog is FLOWER.
 
Your next stop on the hop is the FSS Challenge blog.

 Here is the hop list if you need any links!
