This card is for today's sketch challenge(SC234)! Thanks, Roxie for a great sketch!!!
I did modify the sketch a little just to accomodate my usual square card preference.
I am showing you a sneak peek at a few sets to be released at ODBD on July 1st!!! It is called Mother Teresa. The Lotus image that comes in this set is the National flower of India where Mother Teresa served. This set comes with wonderful quotes by Mother Theresa. On the inside of my card I am using one of the quotes.
I am also using another set called Let Us Begin. It has more Mother Teresa quotes along with two corner detailing images. Love these!!! They add just the perfect finishing touch.

I am using SU NEW In Colors today. I am using Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I combined these with Kiwi Kiss(soooo going to miss this green). I love the three together. I sponged each panel with a closely matched ink...I do not have the inks for these. I used PTI hibiscus burst for the melon mambo, Adirondack Lettuce for the Kiwi Kiss, and Adirondack Pool for the Bermuda Bay. I colored my image using copics markers.

I used a cuttlebug embossing folder that I am not sure I have ever used more than once. I decided it was time to dust it off in order to create some different texture on the background bermuda panel. I finished my card with some silver pearl domes that Silke(sparklegirl) sent me. She is the best!!! Thanks, girl!!!
