I got up way to early this morning so I looked for the Ways to Use it challenge..
WT383: In Stitches
I die cut the first wild bloom and used it as a stencil. I used my copics to blend a bit inside the cutout. I used R81,83 & 85 for inside the flower and G82 & 94 for the stem. I cut another Memory Box wild bloom out and adhered it over the colored stencil.
As I went to sew around the edges I messed up one of the corners.... It was way to early to be sewing. I ended up covering it up with the photo corners. It was actually a simple and quick card. With this sentiment it can be used for almost anything.
CENTRAL THEME CT0612: Diamonds and Pearls
Thanks for looking

So it was too early to be sewing but not too early to be coloring? Your coloring always looks amazing, Irene! I love this card and isn't it funny how sometimes a mess up will cause your card to look better than expected? I think this is wonderful~
