Lost my card making groove, anyone see it lying around somewhere

Lol, I decided I would make a card this afternoon using my friend Kims (author of Creative Diversions " blog) clear stamps that I borrowed. I used the stamps from the "Clear Designs" stamps (Hero Arts put them out), and it was the "K" set I used :)! I used the Kimono stamp from this set as well as the curls from it, and used a flower from a clear set I had called "Garden Words".

For the base of this card, I just used a white piece of cardstock that I had gotten from "Carousel Rubberstamp store". I used a stamp that Kim was selling from her vast collection, it has sort of a Irish look to it but felt it would be perfect for this card. I stamped this image on the base of my card, then added the stamped image of the Kimono and also the flowers onto a piece of black and cream colored cardstock. I used white ink to stamp the Kimono (Dew Drop ink pad), and I used the sky blue Colorbox Pigment ink to stamp the flowers on. I used Brillance black ink to stamp the base image as well as the swirls under my flowers on the cream cardstock. I thought the card was missing something, then it dawned on me that I had the perfect thing to put there on my was the Swarvroski crystals that I had purchased from Michael's when they were on sale. I don't know what I am going to use this card for yet, but my dh aunt is a librarian at an elementary school and she has a new VP there...might be a good card for her. Let me know what you think !
