Purple Blossom

Well, I did as I said I would and started sketching again.  This time I decided to sketch some flowers. I've coloured two so far and will be sharing another card soon.  This time I decided to use my Spectrum Noir markers to colour in my flower.  Not sure exactly what kind of flower it is but I thought it was pretty in its simplicity.  Take a look...

Once I had drawn and coloured it I fussy cut it out.  I stamped my flourishes (Inkadinkado) in mellow moss (SU!) then I adhered my flower.  I stamped the sentiment (Fiskars) in black.  I like how the flower is the star of the card and goes off the edge a bit.

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:

CAS-ology - cue card is Blossom
Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes
Fusion Card Challenge -  I went with just the inspiration photo.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic day!
