For today's Free For All Challenge (F4A123 - what a load of scrap!).
I used scrap DP for the border at the top (and border at bottom of inside panel). Just love this DP from My Mind's Eye. I kept these pieces and didn't really expect that I'd use them. To me, the pattern should be horizontal and these scraps were vertical end cuts from an earlier card. I was suprised when they looked good with my card.
I used scraps of Kiwi Kiss cardstock for the flourish and borders for the DP. I love Kiwi Kiss and have been using it sparingly ever since it retired.
The tiger lilies are done on watercolor paper with Stampin' Write markers and blender pen. I used Cameo Coral and Tangerine Tango as part of a color challenge a couple of days ago and just love the two of them together.
