Sparkle Creations Challenge #55: Photo Inspiration

Hello! This week at Sparkle Creations, our challenge is this gorgeous photo inspiration!

I decided to go with the colors but my green is a little too bright. Oh well, it will do! LOL

How many embossing folders do you guys own but hardly use? These are a must but how often do we really use them? Well, I have a lot of them and I don't use them often enough. So for this card, I decided to put them to good use! I used two different embossing folders here but originally I used three. The other just didn't fit in.

For my card, I used Cherry Blossom Rin. I colored her with Copic. But I mixed it with a touch of prismcolor color pencils...more so on the hair part. Recently, I love mixing the two!

The pearl stickpin is handmade by me. Some are available at my Etsy store. I don't promote my Etsy store often. Can you tell I am not a business person? LOL

Who loves a good sale? I do, I do!! Check out this months' sale at Sparkle Creations!

That's all for now. I shall share more creations later this week! Thanks for stopping by!
