Coral Flower Sketch Challenge

This card is for Midnight Madness sketch challenge this week. I altered the sketch somewhat, the panel was supposed to be in the middle of the card but I just couldn’t bear to cover up the gorgeous glittery swirls on the DP. There is a close up of the glitter below.

Not much to tell, the ribbon had pale pink flowers, I coloured over the entire ribbon with a coral Copic marker so it would match. The flower was coloured with a chocolate Copic marker and then sprayed with gold Perfect Pearls in water for some shimmer.

I love the colors. And embossed glitters.

I like your style actually. But I never try embossing on cards before. Would try soon enough.
