Flower Basket

We have a colour challenge for you this week at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges.  It is still summer here so we want you to make a card or other paper project with sunny yellow and white or cream.  You must use a digital image on your project and while you don't have to use one of Daisy's wonderful images, you will get two entries in the challenge if you do.

This fabulous basket of flowers comes with the sentiment but even on its own I think this is such a versatile image because you could use it for a birthday card, sympathy card, get well card or even a card for a friend.

It is hard to see in the photo but I have glittered the distressed edges with Stickles and sprayed Glimmer Mist on the flowers. it doesn't hurt to add even more sparkle to all this sunshine:)

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Mark's Finest Papers - Think Flowers
