Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - So Thankful For... Card

It's good to be back doing these weekly sketch challenges again, although I don't feel that my artwork is up to my usual standard since I have been away from it for so long... I guess it's kind of like riding a bike - you lose your skills when you don't practice for a while. 

The sketch is shown below the card. I really wanted to highlight the flowers on this card and I wanted to emboss the front as well, yet leave room for the sentiment, so I had to choose a pattern that could be easily repeated. I coloured the clear sparkles flourishes with the new ShinHan markers from Close To My Heart - am loving those! 

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart unless otherwise stated: 

Paper: Black Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Cotton Candy Cardstock
Stamps: A Friend Like You (ret.)
Ink: Black
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (not CTMH), Sparkle Flourishes, Sparkle Flourishes - Small, ShinHan Marker - Leaf Green, Licorice Opaques (ret.)
