The Roses Challenge......



Good Morning Blogger's 

Today's card was made for The Roses monthly challenge. Olga, Betty, Kim, Connie, Kerrie and I make a card to post at the end of each month taking it in turns to host the challenge.  Craftie Connie chose this month and she asked for 'flowers'.  I'm sorry Connie I didn't read the directions very well, Kerrie explained that you wanted to see some dimensional flowers.......oops failed! I'd already mailed this little card to Canada as May was also Connie's Birthday!  

This Orchid image from GKD was coloured with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinder die.
I love the colour of this card - I'll call it Magenta (?) I just added some glitzy ribbon and four clear dew drops to complete what was a quite quick card to make, I probably spent more time colouring the Orchid!!

Hope you're all enjoying your week end......in Sydney we woke to some pale sunshine with a nice breeze. No Cyclonic weather yet, though the South Coast had a rough night so it could be heading our way!
