Here is my card.  I was trying to achieve the look of cloisonne, and I think I was successful, somewhat anyway.  I had a lot of fun making this card.  I colored the white silk flowers with my copics.  I stamped the flowers from the Easter Patch Set, PK-286, with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger's superfine detail gold embossing powder.  Then colored with my copics, of course.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for stopping by.  Your visits are always appreciated!  Be sure and check out what my Peachy Sisters have designed and my friend Kristal, at Getting Cricky With K. Andrew.  She is guest designer for this week, and I just love the card she made for today's post.

Hugs and smiles,
