Have a Beautiful Day

Hi All

I hope you are all having a beautiful day.

I now I have used this flower from Altenew quite a lot recently and am sorry if you are sick of seeing it! I just love it and today I have another take on it inspired by photo the April Inspiration Challenge at Altenew

The flower and sentiment are from Altenew

The yellow flower inspired me to colour the main flower in yellows-and yes-I used copics! Quite unusual for me but I did enjoy it. I also used the other colours as a base but didn't quite have the right shades.I used the main colours but took the more vibrant take that you see at the challenge this week at Cupcake Inspirations.

My layout is taken from the sketch challenge at The Flower Challenge

I will also enter this into:

Enjoy the rest of your day x

  8. This flower stamp is lovely and I think how you cut around it to make the panels is a brilliant idea, very effective and decorative! You've made many beautiful cards while I was enjoying sun on Lanzarote and some family time, I browsed your blog to see what you've been up to.

  9. Couldn't get sick of seeing any of your fabulous cards, Sandie ... this is a beauty! All that crisp white space with the pop of colour from the base and from that lovely posy of blooms ... so fresh and pretty! Hugs, Anita :)
