Love those Buttercups....


Hello my friends, I am taking a break form painting and such this weekend and decided to play in a challenge, I know I can't believe it myself.

I am using the newly released set from Doodle Pantry this month, the new color plus set of the previously released set Buttercups which you can find in the store by clicking here .  

I couldn't resist when I saw this fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and decided that I just had to play.....  


The sentiment is from this same Buttercups Color Plus set, I used my Prismacolor pencils to color, adding a bit of baja breeze from Stampin' Up to shadow the image. I punched flowers from lattice embossed paper and then layered them with foam dots on scallop squares in black. The background was embossed with the stylized flowers embossing folder.


I used my fave quote (Stampendous stamp) for the inside and love that you can see the relief from the embossing.

Hurry and check out this week's sketch and if you don't have time, you may want to give them a play next week. Fantastic sketches!

Have a wonderful evening!

Your coloring is great - in fact it looks so much like Laurie's pre-colored images I had to go back and re-read whether you colored or not! So many have been using this image that I may have to, too! Makes such a pretty card!
