Esty-inspired challenge # 81

So much for an early night last night... I visited the delightful Virginia's blog and saw what she did for the Esty-inspired challenge #81.  So I popped over to their blog.  I too was inspired by this bag on Ponder and Stitch site.
I started by stamping Hero Arts Outline Flowers (S5135) in white Stazon onto the blue card,  I used my colouring pencils to add red and yellow to the flower centres. I had the Pure Innocence ( from Heather Ellis - sponsor for the challenge this time) image printed awaiting colouring... so coloured in Yellow and red to tie into the flower centres.  I used the Card Patterns Sketch  #57 as a basis for the card ( just turned my oval up the other way) - Added the striped ribbon and the yellow ribbon and a double bow ( courtesy of my Bow-Easy) and a couple of red gems.  This was a fun challenge and even if I didn't get the early night I planned I had a great time making this one.

thanks for stopping by.  I do appreciate it that you all take the time to visit.
