Swap project

I in a swap hosted by Alex {Californiastampin on side bar} and you have to use all current SU stuff. Which isn't a problem because I have a ton of SU stuff {hobby demo}. I have way too much Groovy Guava paper, so I have to use that for one of my swaps. I have to make two sets of 8 cards.
This card took a long time to make because I finally decided to use my blender pens with the chalk. You get really pretty results using this technique, but because I have so much coloring to do, it took a while. If I can only find my watercolor pen, I could do this using ink and would go a little faster. Not sure if this is the one that I'm going to send in, but its a start.
All SU Materials used:
Groovy Guava, Kraft & Whisper White cardstock, Ginger Blossom dp, Groovy Guava ribbon, Basic Black ink, Heartfelt Thanks & Embrace Life stamp sets & dazzling diamonds glitter to glitterfy the flower.
