Three of a Kind....

well it's been a very hectic and tiring week - still not fully recovered from my virus and feeling very tired at night, so nearly a week since I last blogged.   Have done a few cards -mostly for DT work and I have one to share today as it's a new challenge at Creative Craft Cottage.

Our sponsor this fortnight is  The East Wind

I chose to work with an image called Aurora Floral Kiss


I printed her out and used Copics as my colouring medium.  My dots are a la Kathy Racoosin. I die cut the panel out with Die-Namics stitched round rectangles The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set. My three of a kind are the three orange and red flowers.  I made these with punches.  The background flourish is a holly die cut with some watercoloured paper.

As this fits the theme (Spring in her step) for the Challenge at The East Wind Blog  I am entering one. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have an awesome weekend.

Wow - I never would have thought to pair this with the black cardstock, but I love how the bright colors of the flowers look with it. Really pretty!

Stunning Dawn - love your leaves, and the way you have coloured her hair is great - I am about to colour some hair black and you have given me some more ideas - thanks for the inspiration.
