Daughter's Floral

Hello everyone!  I just had to make a card for yesterday's color challenge on SCS.  Betty chose retiring SU! colors Ruby Red, Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral.  I didn't get to this until 11 PM so I just thought I'd post it here.  I used the Our Daily Bread designs Mom set and added the bumblebee from the Happy Mothers Day set and colored with Copics.  Used a Spellbinders Label 11 for the image and Scalloped Frame.  I cut the frame again from Cameo Coral to get the matting, ran that through the CB with the textile folder and ran white ink over it.  Mounted on Blush Blossom base.  Added some ZVA Creative pearls, a Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Stickles,  a bow and done. 

I am entering this into the following challenges:
My Time To Craft - pretty pearls
 The Corrosive Challenge - Texture
Crafty Angels
- My favorite things
Practical scrappers- glitter and bling (Stickles and pearls)
Stamp scrap doodle - Birthday
Simon says Stamp: movies and dry embossing ( Image makes me think of Sweet Magnolia)

A thought for today:  Ps. 40:8  "I delight to do Your will, O my God..."

Have a blessed day!

Hi Grace~

What a bright-wonderful-happy card!
I am sure your daughter will cherish it. It is truly a beautiful card. Your copics coloring is fantastic...a talent you have mastered on any art piece!

I love the background of the card. Your butterfly is incredible with the pearls on it and the pearls showing movement. Your bow is wonderful, I love the ribbon.

You are one fantastic artist!
