New DT Opportunity at My Besties UK Team! It's time for SAME BUT DIFFERENT! It's a Winner for me!!

I'm so honored to be asked to join the Design Team of My Besties UK Group!  This is my first card with them and I can't tell you how I agonized over every Copic Stroke that I made~I just wanted it to be perfect you see!
The 15th of every month we post our creations, each of us using the same image but with our own Flair added!  Thus the title "Same But Different".  The Winner of that My Besties UK Challenge will get the Image we use FREE!  I decided to work with red and tried to get the depth into the flower. For me, it's a difficult color to truly get accurate. After working for hours on the coloring, I double matted Img 933 Valentine.  mounted it on a cut-back card front-hoping you can see on the insert picture. Added a brushed silver dragonfly brad in the corner and faceted jet black bling in the corner.  The inside has a complimentary liner of patterned tone on tone design paper, a flourish sticker to accent the white ink stamped sentiment.
I think it will make a great card for a friend of mine-she will Love the Big eyed Girl image from Sherri Baldy!  Make sure you come back for the main My Besties UK Challenge on the 1st of every month, and watch for the theme, where
our winners will receive the following
1st prize 4 images of choice
2 prize 2 images of choice
3rd prize 1 image of choice
