This week I have MANY photos for you.  I chose to make an anniversary card with a beautiful
D'Amour Allure stamp which is called "Afternoon Walk" and some beautiful flowers from them as well.
For my 3-D project I made a door hanger
for my craft room using the wonderful Petaloo flowers.

I used several different Spellbinders dies...the crown, key, keyhole and heart as well
as the fancy square frame.  The beautiful flowers you see on my project all started out
white.  The Petaloo flowers are so versatile and can be colored in so many different ways.
This time I used my Pearl Ex powders which I mixed with a little floor was to make a paint.
Why floor wax?  I don't know.  When I first bought some Pearl Ex I read it somewhere on line.
I don't know if it helps it set or what? 
The shimmer on the flowers is amazing in person. 
The sentiment is a free digi from Ginger's House.

The wood door hanger was painted with 2 shades of Distress Crackle Paint.
I used Antique Linen and Dusty Concord.
