A Sketch and a Circle - JustRite stamps and Copic markers

The challenge this week at JustRite Stamps has some twists to it! It is being hosted by Copic markers and along with the sketch, a circle or circles need to be part of the card. I just had to also use my Copic Markers since I soooo love using them.
If you look at the sketch that JustRite stamps provided you will be able to tell that I turned it on it's side. I often like to "think a bit outside the box" when using a sketch. I wanted my flowers to be purple so I went with a color scheme of green and purple/lavender.
That amazing card base is new Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions Core'dinations. It comes with that embossed design in it already and then I did a little bit of sanding here and there. After I finished coloring my flower and frame, I gave my image a spray of green Glimmer Mist. I like what that does to "finish" a project. I used the Bead Paint by Tulip for the little middles of the flowers and I added self adhesive pearls by Queen & Co to the circle, border design. Those white, fan-looking accents above my flower image are portions of a Martha Stewart border punch.

You are teasing us with those cupcakes, they look tasty.

Great card and all for thinking out side the square when it comes to sketches and prompts, outside the square is where the best fun can be found.

Very pretty card. I have so many glimmer mists, and usually don't use them because I hate the mess, but I've got to admit I like the looks of the finished project.
