The Flower Challenge #7 Sketch 1 Reminder

Its time to remind everyone that The Flower Challenge #7
has reached its half way point and that if you want to enter and are struggling
with ideas the brilliant Design Team has come up with even more examples
to share with you.

My card I cut a stitched rectangle of copic card stock then stamped these sweet
little flowers from the Altenew stamp set randomly on the piece then
coloured lightly with Copics.

I coloured some of the bigger flowers with the same colours but added a wee bit
of bright pink RV04 to the centre near the yellows and feel that worked really well.
I added Glossy Accents to the flower centre and fussy cut the flowers and leaves.

I finished the card off with this Penny Black 'thanks' die cut
in gold cardstock. You can see the 'thanks' better IRL  and I am
happy with how it looks there. I did move it around a bit but found 
I just didnt like it anywhere else.

Now its time to go check out the Design Teams creation and
remember once there you can go to any of the teams blogs to read
about how they made their cards and what the stamps and dies are.

I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations at 'The Flower Challenge'


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

Oh my friend, this is so beautiful, love the die cut and stamped piece in the back, but your main flowers are stunning. Beautiful sentiment die, in gold it adds so much glamour and elegance.
Awesome card.
