Fred She Said - but it will be soon! It's a design I was asking for and Tracey has exceeded my wildest expectations with her drawing. If you think I've not blended the petal edges very well, there are quite a few types that have very strong colour at the edge and fade quickly into the centre... The ones that are out in my garden at the moment are the browny-red ones with speckles, not the same but so very welcome, they mean spring is really on the way. I think these are also going to be available as pre-coloured digis and I'm really looking forward to these.
My card is based on what I thought was quite a challenging Sketch Saturday layout, I spent a while playing with bits of paper and I'm pleased with the way it's ended up. DP is Basic Grey Kioshi with lots of stitching on it, the centre oval has script dry embossed then it's been heavily inked with Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord. Sentiment stamp is Hobby Art, flowers coloured with Copics and Stickles.
My card is for the following challenges:
