Hibiscus any occasion card

Good Morning Dreamers..

This morning I am bringing you a card that I think turned out rather pretty.  I am on this kick lately to keep the colors simple, yet with something eyecatching. 

Card Recipe
I printed off a digital image of 3 Hibiscus Flowers then fussy cut close to the edge, colored the center flower in a couple shades of pink copic markers, the outer 2 flowers colored in grey copics. I then used pebbles chalks to apply a layer of pink to give a lil softer look to the center and the same technique applied to the grey flowers.  When I was happy with my colors I took a black copic and went all the way around the edge to frame the cut. Tiny dots of red stickles applied to the stamen to add just a hint of sparkle.
Wood Grain paper in white from American Crafts was die cut using My Favorite Things "Stitched Wonky Dies" courtesy of Heather Ferguson over at 
I used the same color grey pebbles chalks to brush over the wood grain to add a shadow effect under the flowers and to really highlight the texture of the paper.
Silver cording applied in various wide circles to top of wood grain paper.
Finished off the card by using foam pop dots on the Hibiscus Flowers.

If you get a moment stop on over at SuperFox Designs and take a peek around..
