Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday

EDIT:  Question from Christ from Iowa asked me if I could share how I colored the flowers.  
I used BV00, BV02, BV04 and Y28.  I added a bit of yellow to the center of each flower after I did a base coat with my lightest purple.  From there I used the feathering technique and then covered the flowers with Sukra glitter pen and added some crystals.  I hope this helps Chris...Blessings to you!

Before I get on with my card...we also have a new Guest Designer this month, Darlene.  Please welcome her this month and visit her amazing blog for tons of inspiration.

Here is this weeks challenge.  A sketch.

Good Morning!  Today is Challenge day over at Sugar Creek Hollow.   We have a sketch challenge for you.  This is my take on the sketch.   I used the February violets for my focal image.  Colored them with Copic markers, sakura glitter pen, and swarovski crystals.  The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink - Dress form mini set.

Please join in the fun and make a card following this sketch. Make sure to check out the Design Team over at the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog.

Thank you for stopping by,

You do clean and simple to perfection. I wish I had your knack. This is so beautiful and elegant. Love the shade of purple on the flowers and the beautiful crystal centers. Excellent job!
