This A2 size card features the Flourish Thinlits dies and Brusho Crystals from Stampin' Up!.

I sprinkled Brusho Crystals onto watercolor paper and then used a spritzer bottle to spray water on the crystals.  Add more crystals and more water until you are happy with your background piece.  Let it dry thoroughly before proceeding.

I cut the shapes using various dies in the Flourish Thinlets, and a banner from the Bunch of Banner Framelits, from Mango Melody paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set using Poppy Parade ink, and glued all to the background piece.

The background piece was then glued to a Mango Melody mat, and then onto a Poppy Parade card base.

To brighten the colors a bit I spritzed the whole card front with a mix of Vegas Gold shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol.
