Thank You Bouquet

Well I've finished the Crafter's Companion cards and they've been posted so expect some sneak peeks very soon. I've made one of my DT cards for this week and decided it was time to have a play with something else before I make another card for an order. I haven't used this LOTV bear for much too long and these colours are way out of my comfort zone but I'm really pleased with the result. I used a mix of papers as I don't have many citrus coloured papers. The backing paper is from a Country Diary freebie pack, the yellow is K&Co Daisy and the others are First Edition Desert Bloom.

I used 2 MS border punches and an old X cut daisy punch. The peachy coloured paper is double sided so the striped flowers were made from the other side.

Challenges:
Lili of the Valley Punch it out
Sketch Saturday Love this sketch
DYSU Orange
Paperplay Summer citrus splash
The Corrosive Challenge Summer colours
Divas by Design Floral
