What do you think?

I went to Lowes  (home improvement store)  today and found some flash metal (cost me a whole 43 cents) ran the flash metal thru my Sizzix Big Shot die cutting/embossing machine with a plastic embossing folders.... it came out so cute! I just did a little piece, since I wasn't sure what it would be in the end... but then after I did the folder on it, I colored the little flowers with a marker, then used glossy accents to make it look more dementional, then put a little jewel in the middle of the flower... what do you think?
