D2D: Garden Party

Hi friends,
I have a card to share using this week's free image that was emailed to everyone who played along with the progressive challenge at Designed2Delight last week. If you didn't get to play along, this image will be available at the D2D store so you can get in on the fun!
Here's my card:
I decided to go with fun, spring colors cuz the weather here is SoCal has been wonky! It was near 90 degrees earlier in the week & now it's raining & cold! ugh :(
How 'bout some card deets :)
This is a cuuuute image & was fun to color. Speaking of which, it was colored with Copics, then I added yellow liquid appliqué to the centers so they're puffy. To finish, I gave all of the flowers a kiss of Diamond glaze. The bee's wings & the cupcake got a bit of Stickles for sparkle.
Here's a closer peek:
The edges got bitty pearls with my Viva Decor Paper pen :) To finish, I added a double bow & hung a paper charm from it.

If you decide to play with this image the next cutie will be emailed to you. Please hop on over to the Card Ideas blog for more card inspiration! and if you're looking for the *perfect* Easter image for your cards, Faith has posted a beautiful one as a Facebook Freebie---> Here.

Thanks so much for peeking today!
