Hooked on something new #15

The girls over at Hooked on Crafts asked us to try something new this fortnight. No problem!
I am such a free and easy spirit with no limits to my unstructured and easy going life style. I could try something new without any stress to me at all.
NOW! If all of my friends could stop laughing immediately, I would appreciate it.
No seriously - Stop laughing.
I think that there are some things that I am very relaxed about - I try to take on the philosophy of "Life is way too short to worry about ... stuff!"
But then ... on the other hand... I could possibly be a teeny tiny bit compulsive about things as well. (So I have been told)
Back to the challenge: I love layering and I love my Copics so I avoided both on this card. Seeeee! I can do something new! (Although there are two layers of white on this card and I would dearly love to add some dimension to those leaves with a YG67)
All of these gorgeous flowers and adhesive pearls can be purchased at the Hooked on Crafts on line store.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Deep Ocean #16 Lots of white
Flutterby Wednesday #184 Open
Stampin with the Dragon #1 Frames
One Stop Craft Bingo (Emboss/Diecut/Flowers)
2 Sisters #73 Things with Wings
