One Stitch at a Time Challenge 39

This week on One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to use your favourite colours! This week, we're sponsored by Robyn who's offering a $10 voucher.

I've got a lot of favourite colours, but shades that I love, especially together, are peachy/coral colours with pale turquoise. And this week, I got to work with a gorgeous image from Beary Dust whose images are available at the Stichy Bear shop. It's called 'Precious'.
I coloured the image three times with Promarkers, and layered it - that hat just cried out to be layered! The background papers are from Papermania. The rest of the card shows off some of my birthday presents! The border is a Spellbinders border die which I cut in both colours. (The lower layer was cut through the middle so I could offset it.) And the flowers were made with a new Marianne die, which to my relief, cut really well in my Wizard. (I'd heard comments that they weren't compatible, but they worked fine for me.) I coloured the flowers with Promarkers to match the image, and finished them off with some brads.

So what're you waiting for? Make something in your favourite colours!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges: Fairy Fun Friday who want us to make our own flowers,
Stamp Challenges who're having a 'Digi Day'
If the Shoe Fits who're looking for DIY embellishments (the flowers)
AI Factory weekly who're looking for die cuts/punches (the flowers and the border)
