Homemade Shiney Flower Sketch

Things have been a little crazy lately, and I haven't been doing too many challenges. Well...today I was able to get a couple done...with one card! This weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge is homemade flowers, so I decided to make a folded flower. This weeks Creative Belli Challenge is Color Spray...which is hard to see in the picture...but I mixed mint green liquid pearl and water in a spray bottle, and added that. I took a couple close-ups that you can see it a little better. The lighting today is horrible since it is a rainy day here. And finally I put it all together using this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch. So without further ado...here is my tri-challenge card.I went with the teal color again...lol. I think I am being "taken with teal". I used some old SU DSP that I had for the folder flower. I put a beaded center on (which came with some other flowers I purchased). I also added a clear micro bead flower with a teal dew drop center. I used a teal base, certainly celery PP, another teal layer (which I stamped the word "bloom" from a SU set on), the some certainly celery ribbon, and the flowers. I sprayed each layer with the liquid pearl water mixture, and sprayed the folded flower. Here are a couple close-ups so you can see the flower and the sparkle/color spray.
Well that is it for now. I will be back tomorrow with my first ever easel card.
