I used water color paper added the Gelatos, misted with water, then smeared it with the paint brush. For the "thank you" i used zing white embossing powder to make it pop. Added the super cute sequins that i picked up at Walmart. Check out my Haul video to see the bag full of mixed sequins i purchased, linked on the left sidebar. It is mounted on black cardstock. I just love this card, i wasn't sure about it at first. But after i added the thank you and sequins i fell in love with it!
