Thanks

Hi there!

The very first challenge starts today at


This is a fortnightly challenge and there are 2 teams ... Team Diane (of which I am part of) and Team Darlene
Our first challenge is hosted by Team Diane 

Flowers & Blue


For my card I used a digital watercolour image of Forget-Me-Nots by Gail Flores 


which I printed onto linen card stock - I used the inlaid die technique for the 'Thanks"


The little bowl I hand cut and water coloured before adding Glossy Accents to give it a ceramic look but it's hard to capture that on my photos


Each team member has a different style so please hop on over to the blog to take a look at all the different creations ... We do hope that you will be inspired to join us 

It so happens that the first challenge of the year at Just Us Girls is word week 



So I'm entering this card there too...

Have a lovely day ... Be safe

Hugs 

~ Ros ~
