Red Peony

I was inspired to create this card based on a pillow at Charleston Gardens, which is the Inspiration Challenge website which Judy (stampingqueenJAR) chose for us at SCS today - here's the PILLOW.
I'm hoping to get lots of housework done today so I went with a CAS look and simply colored the image, adding a frame with a black fine liner and then popping it up on black.  I added a few pearls for the flower center and to accent the sentiment.
Here are the copics which I used:
Covered the whole area of each petal to be colored with R000
Then colored the petal center areas with R59, and worked outward on each petal with
R29, R24, R22, R20 and then used R000 again on the very tips of each petal.
Supplies include:
SU Whisper White cardstock
SU Basic Black cardstock
Black fine line pen
Pearls
Copics
Stampendous Jumbo Peony

Funny how you don't notice things. I've been favoring your cards at SC for over a year and I didn't notice that you had your own blog. With gorgeous cards like this, I'll be back often.
Hugs,
