Rick St. Dennis Progressive Challenge May 2015

This is my EDT card for the Sparkle and Glitter May Progressive Challenge.  I used the image Q of H 2015..  I really love this image.  I colored it twice.  The first time I did it I loved how it turned out.  Then I tried to get a little fancy with some Liquid Pearls.  That was not a good idea.  I totally messed it up so there are none on this version.  Don't you just hate it when you're 95% done with something and mess it up!

I used my Silhouette to cut the flower.  I purchased just about all of their 3D flowers, but this is the first time I'm using one.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.  The silk ribbon is from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and the lace is from JoAnn's.  The image is colored with Copics.
