Citrus Colours and Flowers

On a whim, I decided to make a card this weekend for no specific purpose. It seems I don't do that very often these days - it's normally for someone specific or it's a DT commitment that gets me crafting.

I printed out an image I've had for a while: it's from Delicious Doodles and it's available via the Stitchy Bear Outlet - link in my sidebar.

Now, it seems that whenever I use this image, I'm drawn to my collection of Kate Knight papers, and this time is no exception. I chose this rather pretty citrus-themed paper, and coloured the image to match using my Promarkers. I cut the image with a Spellbinders die - one I've found less useful than I'd hoped, but it worked well here. I edged the image with Distress Ink (vintage photo) and completed the card with some hand-made flowers. The larger ones were made using Crealies dies - not my favourite because they're foam backed making it harder to get a good cut. However, I was successful this time. I used a variety of punched shapes for the centres. The smaller flowers use the dies for the small lily from Susan's Garden, but I've used them to make a rather different-looking flower.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge where anything goes,
ABC Challenge where 'E is for Embellish',
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge where anything goes,
Feeling Crafty where they want die cuts/punched shapes,
Come and Get It where they want us to 'make it girly',
The Alphabet Challenge where they want 'zesty colours'.
