I happened to make a greeting card for a friend. I used glitter colors and a real flower. It added a touch of realism to a card. This flower was left as such for few days so that it let all the moisture. Make sure your flowers have lost all their moisture before using them in a project or they may turn brown. To attach the flowers use dry adhesive dots.
