Sugar Bowl Challenge #17 - Judy's Sketch

Sorry I'm a little late in posting today. It's hubby's 50th, and I have a party planned (surprise) for Sat. So I was cramming 3 cards for advanced posts while I'm busy at the party and preparing. This is my Sugar Bowl card for this weeks challenge. Considering I'm a pink girl, I sure seem to be making tons of cards in purples these days. This week we had to follow a sketch by Judy, and had to hand make our flowers. I used my Dhalia Spellbinder punch and cut out the 2 smaller flowers, and put a sugar coated purple brad in the middle. I colored my new Gorjuss girl from set 3 with my Lyra's and mineral spirits. I added tons of glitter, and put rhinestones on both crowns. I embellished with some ribbon I had in the old inspiration room and put 2 little glitter buttons on the ribbon to decorate. Hope you like it. Here's Judy's sketch.
