Coloring time ...

 Hi Everybody,

Sitting with my pens to color an image is something I haven't done for quite some time and it is nice to take the time out to get back to it .... if only for a short time

This image is from a  Lily of the Valley  paper stack that I have had for a long time ... in fact I think it was free with a magazine

I used Chameleon Pens and then went ahead and made the card.

The dotty card is from AnnaMarie Designs and I have lined the inside with the same card

The ribbon is from Mei Flower  and I have tied it into a single bow at the top of the card.

The flowers just tumble down from the bow and they are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and are a lovely mixture of Chrysanthemums, Gypsophillia, Tulips and Roses

The panels behind the flowers is another one that has been embossed with  Grate Effect   and then I rubbed a pale pink ink pad over it to accentuate the design

Altogether a really pretty card and a very pleasant hour or two for me to color it in.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Good Morning Christina :) What a precious and sweet card this morning! I just love it! I sure wish I had that talent for design and just knowing where to put things. I don't do too badly and at that, I really have to "work" at it. But, You have The Gift! It seems to come so natural for you. And, I'm sooooooo grateful you share it with us. Thank you for all you do. Enjoy a beautiful day.
