Less is More #430 - CASE

 Happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge over at Less is More. This fortnight we are asking you to CASE our amazing leader, Sharon!

Here is Sharon's amazing card -

I absolutely loved CASEing this one. I loved the layout so kept it pretty much the same (the only difference is my placement of the sentiment). I changed up the colours - I used an ink smooshing technique with brushos and water to create my background panel using scraps of watercolour paper.

I added some silver mica powder to my brusho mix to give it shine. The flowers are by Paper Artsy which I coloured with polychromo pencils. I added a dot of silver sparkle with a pen to the middle of the flowers.

The flourish was die cut using a scrap of silver mirror card.
