A Flower of Blessings

This Digital Delights image is one of my simple and versatile...and it's on special right now!
Daisy Flower

 I took it the monochromatic route today, and decided to pull out a color CS and paper I haven't used in a long while...plum.

I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

Being on the DD design team gives me the opportunity to play with Wendy's images. It stretches me. I did paper piecing, and used some inkpads and my waterbrush to color. The paper is from my CTMH stash. The ribbon is from my stash, too. The pearls are from Hobby Lobby.  

I used some Stickles Glitter Glue to sparkle up the image. With the plum color I think it looks rather ~magical~

For once I didn't distress the ribbon with my heat tool. The background paper you see is from Michael's.

I am entering this card in some challenges:
