You Make My Heart Happy

Today’s card is inspired purely by the latest muse over at CASE Study (Challenge #122).  Here is the muse card photo – pure loveliness!

And here is my study on it, hope you like it!

Pearl Gateway - January Cards (3)

I started off with her vision of purple, how pretty and perfectly romantic for a Valentine.  My eye also caught her background paper with the hounds tooth, and I knew just the ticket here – this stuff I used is crazy shiny in person.  I placed prima flowers in the lower corner of my card, and brushed some with Copics for dimension and added Liquid Pearls in their centers.  I also liked how the original card uses those pearly stick ons, but I don’t have any so I made faux ones with dots of Liquid Pearls – never did that before!

Here’s a close up of the little garden I’ve got going on!

What do you think, too busy for your taste or lush and dreamy?
