Colours of Mardi Gras

I made this card with the current challenge at Aurora Wings  in mind, which is to use the colours of Mardi Gras...purple, green and gold.I had a lovely time colouring the gorgeous image, Diamonds. I used copics and added a touch of glitter here and there.  I'm happy with how the image came out, not so keen on the card design. 

Thanks for looking

Oh wow Chris, this is so beautiful! Amazing colouring!

And thank you for the absolutely stunning card that landed on the mat yesterday (I was very cheeky and opened my cards today, as we're away to Scotland in the morning, lol), and the gorgeous stamps too. You are so sweet! x
