Hi all, tonight I have a card to share with you that I finished yesterday I have used a new (to me) image from Ching-Chou Kuik she is called Rose in Storm which I thought was highly appropriate considering the awful weather we are having and apparently due to have in the coming days.
I have gone for a rather dramatic colour combo of black and yellow, I coloured the image with Graph It Markers and Copics for the skin tones.  The black cardstock I embossed with a rose embossing folder, I used my Tonic die for the trellis then added some Cosmic Black Pearl PVA for the pearls, finally I added a new Kanban floral sentiment that I got in the post yesterday and some roses and white organza bow.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I have made this card that features an image that I won from Stitchy Bear
I coloured two of the baubles with Graph It Markers the third one I glittered, I used my MCS programme to merge the sentiment.
The papers are from my stash the green base paper is also glittered, I then added a couple of glittered stars and a metallic silver bow.
I took a photo of the card from 2 different angles trying to show up the glitter on the baubles .
