Colour challenge

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all having a fantabulous weekend and have lots of stamping time. For a change, I am doing all the cutting and other prep work for my up coming Ketto 2 class next week. I still have at least 2 more days of work, and then onto the next class. I do take a few minutes here and there to design new cards, and yes , I still do LOVE it.

Here is the Bellarific Friday challenge card that I did for this week. The colours were so yummy and happy that I knew exactly what I was going to do. I felt that flowers would be perfect to colour in, and that patterned paper would finish the card off. Emily, at Stamping Bella, got in these fabulous pouches of different, incredibly, coloured buttons, and they are flat-backed, so thay are very easy to adhere to card stock (which I bought every one of them), so I used the orange button as an embellishment.

I used Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits, glitter in the center of the flowers, and Collage Press patterned paper for the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here.
