Flower Power

Hello and thank you for calling by to visit again.

I needed a card for and eight year old girl, and decided to use this lovely image that Cora from Digital Two for Tuesday put on her site some time ago.

I coloured this with chalks, using the blender pen in some areas, and added some 'jewels' - what self respecting girl dressing to go out would be without them! 

The image was then layered onto coloured cardstock, and mounted onto the base.  Then came the question of an additional embellishment and trying to find the right coloured ribbon was almost impossible, so I went with this irrediscent ribbon and made a double bow.  The sheen and glimmer on this echoed the jewels perfectly, and to finish it I added a jewel to the centre of the bow.

The green base is quite a harsh colour, so to soften it I sponged a mid-green around the edge, which really gave the whole a very 'finished' look that I was pleased with.

I am linking this to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for calling by, and do feel free to comment - I love seeing that you have visited and and reading your notes.

May your day be blessed.
