Hi All,
Hope you are all fine on this Friday morning and looking forward to the weekend. My card today is my 3rd one as Guest Designer for The Stamping Boutique who are sponsoring Crafty Catz this week so I thought I would enter this into their challenge - No Pink or Blue.

I have used this delightful image called "Poppies" which you can find here in the shop. I did not want colour these the usual red so opted for orange instead. Think they look quite good this colour - don't you. I just love colouring Tracey's images - they are so modern and such fun.

Close-up of the image.

And a simple inside decoration.

Colouring medium - Promarkers
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Ribbon, Pearls, cardstock and DPs all from my stash (have had the DP for an age)
Swirls - Magnolia Doohickey
Spiced Marmalade DI to edge the papers.

Well that's all from me for today.
Enjoy your weekend,
Denise xx

This card is being entered into:
Crafty Catz - No Pink or Blue
Charisma Cardz Challenges #29 - Sunshine Colours
