Shades of Copper

A glittery, glitzy card. For me that is. I'm still practising this girly side of card making. This time my attempt is in lots of shades of copper. From the copper gel pen on the image through the copper cosmic shimmer on the dark amber card and pearlised copper to the ribbons.

The SweetPea image itself is coloured using promarkers for the main part with just some hints picked up in the copper gel pens. The body seems not to be coloured but it is. I'm blaming it on the light at the moment.
This is layered onto pearlised copper with a piece of the glimmer misted card. The hand made paper beads have been painted with a shimmer as well.
Copper/bronze metal ribbon and copper organza added.
Some coppery brads in the corner
The sentiment reads "follow your dreams" was stamped onto a scrap and has some little gems in the corners.

I took a pic from a different angle to give an idea on the glitz on here.

I am entering this into the challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers - Glamour and Glitz
