How about some handmade embellishments?

Good Morning everyone! Time for Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenges again and this week it is all about handmade embellishments chosen by the fabulous Anita. I have to say that normally this would be one I love but I have been a little under the weather for the past few days plus working so I struggled a bit so forgive me cause I only managed to put one handmade item on it.
The little yellow resin flower in the corner is all I was able to come up with unless you count my stamped tag that I rubbed with some viva decor inka gold paint. This is birthday Robyn and she is sitting inside a beautiful new nestie I got from Patty for my birthday. Now it is your turn to show us what you can make and for you to win a free stamp or get chosen for the top 3 and the opportunity to post a new banner on your blog.

Love the colors... The resin flower is hand made? You use resin and a mold?

Your resin flower is beautiful, the whole card is fab and I'm loving the bright bold colour scheme. I'm not in any way saying there is anything wrong with your balloons but I've seen a tutorial at http://danasinspirations.blogspot.com/2011/06/tutorial-and-card.html which shows how to colour them with copic's and make them look transulscent...thought it might interest you.
