Friendship card featuring a Unique Sizzix flower die

Today's card showcases a unique Sizzix die that required me to fold back every petal for a dual color, dimensional flower. This is not my usual style, but I thought I'd try something different. I used a heavy weight cardstock called WorldWin DoubleMates. It's the perfect weight for this kind of die cut. With the addition of hotfix pearls and an adhesive center pearl, nothing  but a computer-generated sentiment was needed. I mounted everything to a speckled card from Die Cuts With a View (DCWV). The inside is blank to provide maximum writing space.

I found this die at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section last year. I didn't really understand what I did but figured I'd give it a whirl. Have you ever found a clearance gem like this and taken a chance?

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog today.
