The Flower Challenge #8 CASE a DT Member

A card for The Flower Challenge is to CASE a DT Member


This is the card I selected to CASE by Tae-Eun
There is no way I could compete with these gorgeous flowers, believe me I tried but I didn't have a big enough flower and most of all my Copic skills are not nearly that good.
So I opted to go with the design, using my new Oxide inks to blend the two corners and then used PTI's Garden Gild Cover Plate to die cut it.  I die cut again so I could dry emboss the middle section 
with a Cuttlebug leafy EF.
The sentiment is on PTI's Double Ended Banner with Keeping it Simple Get Well.
