Thanks a bunch

Over at Glitter n Sparkle this week, the challenge (101) is to use a digi...
I use digis a lot on my cards... quick and easy to use, reuseable over and over
 and you can size them to whatever you need!

For this card, I used "Mixed Bouquet" from Eureka. 
I decided to use this image as a thank-you bunch of flowers.
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat...another wonderful digi company.
I coloured the image with my promarkers and mirage pens,
and added  a little gold bow. 
The backing paper is from a dovecrafts set of flowery papers. 
To finish this card off, I embossed a line around the inner edge.
Thinking on, if I made this card again, I would colour the rose in  a much softer pink...
maybe a vintage pink colour. I think it stands out a bit too much... nevermind.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Sister act - anything goes - 12 Sept
Aud sentiments - any sentiment other than birthday - 9 Sept
Hobbybook designer - girly - 16 Sept

Hi Vic, such a bright and cheery chard. I love the background paper with all the color it makes the image really pop on the white. Thanks so much for joining us over at the Doodle Pantry "any digi" challenge. I hope you will come back and join us again!

A lovely card, you can't go wrong with PP images ! I like your backing paper and the embossed line around the edge, and although I understand what you say about colouring the rose pink, I actually quite like it in red, it draws your eye right in to the bouquet. Thanks for joining in with the Sisters of Craft Challenge, Best Wishes, Anne DT x
