More Flowers

Trying to get my act together to play along with this awesome challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays. We are to use pastels with some black!  I'm not sure whether the colours I used are considered pastels or not but I wanted to make this card anyhow.  And seeing as it's all about flowers I think I'll put it into the Hero Arts Monthly contest and the Lily Pad/Simon Says Stamp Challenge too which is to use flowers!

Paper:cardstock (PTI); notecard (Hero Arts); Neenah
Ink:Versafine Onyx Black; Tombow markers
Stamps:Hero Arts (CL493- sentiment; CG362 - Bold Flowers)
Other:bird die (Memory Box)

The colours did not come out clearly on the photo because the one flower is yellow and not lime green, and the other is pink and not that orangey colour!

However, I did want to leave you with some really beautiful flowers that we saw yesterday when we drove up to Independence.





Hope you enjoyed this splash of colour!  Have a wonderful day!
