Petunia

I had to chuckle when I saw this new image at McMahon Five Designs called Petunia.  I call my daughters Petunia........  So, I HAD to make a card with it!
 I colored the image with Copics and added some micro-beads in the center of the flower.  I embossed the background with a SU folder and then sprayed the background with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  I used retired Groovy Guave cardstock from SU and cut out a border using a Spellbinders frame. The gems are colored using R22 Copic markers.
 I cut into the lines of the flower to make it dimensional- here is a close-up:
