Vintage Clover

Hello everyone...  hope you all had a lovely weekend. 
We started partying for Annabel's birthday on Friday and just carried on!!! 
I need a bucket of coffee to get me going this morning.

In my hangover haze yesterday, I made my LIM card.  
This week the challenge is 'Monochrome'.


The clover image is from The Graphics Fairy, printed onto cream card,
coloured and shaded, as best I could, with various brown Copics.
Even after adding the bow it all looked a little flat, 
so I sprinkled on some very fine, brown glitter to give it a lift.


I would also like to enter this for the following challenges.
Craft Emma's - Clean & Simple (check out the awesome work of the DT)
Copic Creations - Distressing with Copics and 2 year Blogoversary. My colouring isn't the best, but I really had fun trying this. If you want to give it a go, head on over there for some awesome inspiration from the DT and amazing 'distressing with Copics' video tuts by Suzanne Dean.
