CES Challenges - Floral Frenzy

I'm running a little late this morning - hubby is in the UK, the little ones are full of big demands and something is affecting my laptop!! I'm not sure if it's slow internet speed or there is a conflict going on within the laptop but it's painful to even get Picasa to work. I tried to add pictures last night but that ended in a very frustrated Sandie.. anyway, it's all good for now (touching wood!!) ...

This week over on CES Challenges the theme is FLORAL FRENZY!! Woot!! Who doesn't love flowers??!! 

I was given some very cute Wild Rose Studio papers in my DT kit and I love making Christmas cards in non tradtional colours. I matched the papers with purple cardstock.

My image is from Lili of the Valley and is coloured using copic markers AND promarkers - yes, I delved into the world of Promarkers - not sure how much I like them yet, they feel so different to use, but I needed purple in a hurry one day last week and our local bookstore sells them. We'll see.... lol. 

I've added loads of sparkle to the image too and will enter this into both the Lili of the Valley challenge, which is a sketch by the wonderfully talented Bev, & Wild Orchid challenges with 'Make it Sparkle"

Well that's it from me for today, I hope you like :) Please be sure to visit my teamies' blogs to see their Floral Frenzy projects. 

Have a great Saturday & happy crafting
