Paper Pricking Technique

Hello everyone!
I have this card to show you today. I made it for a friend in the Netherlands for her Birthday. She is a friend I met in one of the card groups I belong to online. This is pinpricking technique which I find very relaxing. After I pinned the design on my white cardstock, I took a watercolor crayon and lightly brushed it along the designs holes. I also did a 3d decoupage flower for the middle that I layered with pop dots for a raised effect. Then matted it with colors to match. With this card, I did use some pastel pink gems or bling for on the design too.
I am not much of a poet, so to finish off the card's inside, I find a nice "birthday" poem online and print it out in a coordinating color and fit it to the inside of my card. I hope she likes it.
Until next time....Stay Creative!
