Hibiscus in watercolor crayons

I am feeling very frustrated over an unrelated incident to stamping so I decided to break out the Watercolor Crayons and practice. I reorganized the utility room and it didn't help so stamping wins again. This is a new stamp from Kristin Soboloski a friend and new stamp designer over at Starving Art Stamps . The textured layered cardstock is from DCWV and the actual card is Garden Green from SU. I used a scrap of Fabriono watercolor paper for the central image. I debated where to put ribbon and decided to skip it. I used a tiny bit of glitter on the flower centers. I am still mad at myself for making a stupid mistake but I do feel slightly better after focusing on something other than my mistake.
