CAS - flower

Hello again, I had another afternoon in the studio and this is one of the cards that resulted.  I had in mind the Midnight Madness Challenge #46, and the need for more birthday cards :-)

I was quite amazed at how quickly this came together - the colours are not ones that I would have planned to put together, but this one  seemed to make itself.

The centre image is from the Layers of Color Architectural Blocks set, coloured with SU coloured pencils and the blender pen.  The colours are much deeper, and more vivid IRL, but this is a reasonable representation of them, apart from the ribbon.

The sentiment is embossed on vellum and sponged with Whisper Ink Rich Plum, and tones in well with the lighter pink in the flower and the pink in the ribbon.

Thanks for calling by - I treasure your comments.

Hi Maxine - sorry I am so slow getting here - I made the mistake this morning of going to the craft cupboard to get one sheet of DP - 2 hours and one big mess later - arggghhh! Love this Layers of COlor image, you use it so well and your colouring is fabulous! Well done Maxine!
