UDI Color Challenge & Plastic Flower Technique

Hi Everyone
Tuesday means it Utah Divas International Color Challenge; if your an SU! Demo you can join the site, just add your email to the comment section or email it to me privately as well as where you live and I will forward it on.  So you can see today's colors are Real Red, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Regal Rose.  Now I can not tell a lie, I struggled with this!  I am not a fan of Red and Pink together, not at all! Don't know if that makes me old, but me don't like! LOL! So anyways,  I have come up with a little Hostess Gift with a monogrammed matching set of cards.  The little bag is made with the Fancy Favor Bigz Die, can you see the cute little trim around the edges?  This little bag is so cute and would be perfect favor gift at a wedding with your little chocolates inside!   Mine actually has a handle with Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon that fell back and I didn't realize! Sorry, you can't see it! Can you see how my flower looks plastic?  This is the big flower from the Paper Daisies; I spritzed it with Gold Glow Smooch and quickly covered it with clear embossing powder while it was still wet, then I just heat set the powder and I ended up with a pretty plastic flower. I love this technique!  I didn't bother doing a picture tutorial as there really is no point, and no time to take the pictures! LOL! You have to be quick as smooch dries pretty quickly!
Hope you play along with the challenge; if your not a Demo and can't get onto the site, please just put a link up in the comment section for everyone to go look at!
