Lotus Delight by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi peeps.  I made this card for a very special lady (my sons' grandmother).  I went through a devastating event a year ago and this amazing lady has given me so much support, comfort, and love during my darkest moments.  Words cannot express how grateful I am to have her in my life.  So, without further ado, here is my card:

I used the gorgeous "Lotus Delight" image by Ching-Chou Kuik, found here (along with 2 other beautiful images):
This week, the Design Team members were challenged to use some type of embossing.  This card is for Ching-Chou's monthly Facebook challenge.
If you enter, there are some lovely images to be won both in her Facebook challenge and her blog challenge.
  I used my usual mediums (Copics and Polychromos pencils) to colour the image .  The flowers are handmade.  Have a lovely week.  xx 

Materials and Tools Used 

Embossing Folder:  Darice "Sea Shell Border"
Flowers:                  SVG file
Coral:                      Marianne Creatables "Coral Seaweed" die LR1406
Seashells, pearls and seahorse are from my stash.
