This is somewhat based on a SC sketch challenge #377. This SU set is still one of my favorites.
I colored the image with copics and it seemed to match up, colorwise, with SU Orchid Opulence. I found a sheet of SU dsp with that color surprisingly as it's not a color used very often and is a retired color at that. I stamped the image twice, popped it up on dimensionals and covered the whole image with crystal effects for a shiny look. Added some bling to each flower center.
I also popped up the image on the nestie which is lightly sponged with Pale Plum and Orchid Opulence. I used the oval punch for the sentiment placed beneath the image.
I paper pierced 2 of the panels, embossed the panel b/hind the image, added lace, diecuts, flowers, more bling and a ribbon I found that happened to match. I'm not sold on the size of it b/c I think it's a little big for the image, but I just had to use it.
Thanks so much for taking a look and have a great evening.
P.S. I'm not a copic's expert by any means, but if you are interested in what I used for this card, they are:

Pamzi - This is precious! I love Orchid Opulance under the right circumstances, which as you say don't present often - but in this case it's EXQUISITE!! Your flowers just pop - and I absolutely LOvE the pop of green on the leaves. Your ribbon is perfection - not too large in my opinion. And the pretty flowers, bling and butterfly are the perfect touch Twinzi - love this beauty!

Pamzi - this is so pretty. Love your flowers and they are colored so well! You look like a Copic expert to me. I can't believe you still have some OO - it was always one of my fav colors - they need to bring back the purples for sure. Well done purply beauty - whoever gets it will love it. Hugz!!!
