The Flower Challenge #12 Tic Tac Toe

I am so sorry for the lateness of this post. I thought I had written and and set to schedule this post. Even tucked the photos away in the done folder.

This month its 

and here are the brilliant choices.

Now for my card

My choices: White Card Die Cut Sentiment and Blue: blue card and Copic colouring.

Beautiful new flower stamp from Penny Black. Stamped with Distress ink
then copic coloured and slight pencil colouring, very soft minimal colouring. 
Leaves are from the BG range of  inks, so I kept it all blue 
except that yellow dot in the centre.

Die cut from Penny Black as well, isn't it the neatest. Die cut in
white then dark blue foam for contrast. Lost the little white dot,
I mean really it was nearly non existent, replaced with a blue
gem. A few more gems scattered and we are all set up.

Again my apologises for being asleep on the job, now its time to go to The Flower Challenge check out what the rest of the wonderful Design Team has done. (Or have you been there and been waiting for me it get myself organised???)

Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.


Coloured fun foam under the die cut sentiment;
layered sentiment;
cutting around the coloured image;
copic and pencil colouring
Lots of trend there.

My second card, couldn't resist
