Flower Power...

Good Morning...
The challenge this time at 
In The Pink is a 
Pink and Floral Challenge.

Our sponsors are 
The Hobby House
and the prize for the lucky winner is a £10 gift voucher.


My DT card today is made with another of my favourites - Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl - 
Fiona Loves Flowers.

I coloured her using Spectrum Aquas.  (It is the first time I have used those)!   I am fairly happy with the result and I did enjoy using them but upon reflection probably need 
lots more practice and better watercolour card!

You have probably noticed that the colour choice - although still my beloved pink - is more vibrant that I usually choose.  The reason being that I am totally smitten with my new paper pad by Doodlebug Designs.

I used some papers from the aforementioned scrumptious new paper pad from 
Handmade Bliss - Doodlebug Designs 'Hello Sunshine' 
and borrowed a sketch idea which is currently part of the Handmade Bliss July Card Challenge.

I used some paper flowers from my stash and added some of my new favourite embellishments - Doodlebug Glitter Dots...

Here we are then... 'Fiona Loves Flowers'... (and so does Sue)!
