Two Challenges in One

Met up with my crafting buddy, Linda, for tea and scone earlier this week, handing over some goodies I brought back from the UK for her and in return I got a wee pressie too. A wallet of stamped images. Thank you very much Linda.

Maybe some of you don't know it but Linda is one of the Design Team over at Cute Daisy May. By way of a thank you I thought I would use one of the images that Linda had given me in the latest Cute Daisy May challenge. Which one would I use? When I saw the Orange Bush and knew that was it as I had exactly the papers that would go along with it. The papers came from K&company Citronella collection.

Onto the card, the base, 6x6, was made from another K&company collection, this time Recycled Remake Grass Greens. The image was coloured in with copic pens, with the background being, for the want of a word, muddied with the lightest of the Warm Grey copic pens. Finishing it with a few flowers with brads for the centres.

Also included it into Secret Crafter's challenge as this week's challenge asked for stripes and dots.

Thanks for popping by.
