This week's ODBD Shining Light Challenge #151 is to make a card that celebrates and cherishes God's Nature. For this project I went back to one of my favorite sketches, but added something very special - a few new flowers from my sweet friend and fellow ODBD DT member, Sabrina Jackson. She can do truly amazing and beautiful things with flowers, lace, pearls and all things soft and feminine, and it's such an honor that she shared some of her flowers with me. Here's a link to her blog if you want to take a peek at her art: sjbutterflydreams.
I started with the Quote from the new Quote Collection 3 set, and decided to use my Copic markers instead of my go-to sponges and ink, to blend some warm purple/lavender colors that coordinated with the flowers.

Next I added an 18K Gold Leaf border, matted/popped and gold-leafed the other layers, and then worked on the floral spray design. I wanted a touch of green but didn't want anything too bright or dark, so decided to go with a white die cut flourish and Copics to lightly color it.
