Congratulations Darlene (darlenedesign) on being this weeks featured stamper. Wow - what an amazing gallery you have. There are so many cards I would love to case. I chose this beauty Lots of Copic Colouring
Thank you for the tutorial on how you coloured this image. I used the same image and similar colours. I made the polka dot background with a stencil instead of a stamp. I changed the shape of the spellbinder to an oval. Used a different sentiment. Stamped over the image and background with the Sanded background stamp. Sewed around the base card. And added the ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration - Darlene.
I am putting this in the Hope You Can Cling Challenge HYCCT1304 to use dies or punches, and also the Ways to Use it challenge - wrap it up with ribbon.
I have coloured another flower image and will omit the sentiment - so I can send it to MD Anderson with my other cards.
Thanks for looking,

Wow, Pat, this is just amazing. You always put so much into each and every card you create. The coloring on this blossom is stunning and I love all those elements you add in to make it special (ie that sewing!!). Thank you so much for joining in my challenge to 'Punch Out Breast Cancer' in the HYCCT month.

Ai yi yi Pat! This is a stunning creation! Those colors are delish. Your stitching is fascinating, and the perfect touch! (I did some "Kokirose" myself today!) Beautiful case, wonderful addition for the cause. Your heart is in this work! Lymi X2
