My first Riley card :)

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I can't believe it, I made my first Riley card. I won this sweet little flower image not to long ago and finally found time to ink it up.



I'm also submitting it for this weeks  RILEY0510 Challenge. The colors were inspired by the CQC #25 - Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip. The Sketch is from this weeks MTSC66.

The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with these Copic Markers - Y17, G24, E39, E47, R85 plus Colorless Blender. The sentiment is from this Tag Lines Set.

I finished the card by embossing the BG with the SU Elegant Bouquet Texture Die, a 5/8" White Ribbon, a Button and some matching Scrap Floss and some small Silver Pearls.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I'll see you again on Saturday for my last OCC Challenge idea!?!?
