Peace & Strength


My card today was inspired by Marion Vagg's gorgeous card at the Muse challenge and uses the colours from the Colour Me… challenge.  I love how Marion's card is dominated by those beautiful flowers.  Isn't the shading on them perfect?  I went the paper piecing route for my flowers.  Nice and simple.  I'm not all that confident in my shading skills.  I'm hoping the upcoming Copic class with help to remedy that and I can try and be a bit more brave.  :) 

I'm working this morning and the afternoon will probably include some house cleaning and swimming Attiucs.  What are you up to this weekend?

This is beautiful, Jen -- the colours are perfect for the flowers and the sentiment. And once again, you are a genius at bling placement.

Sweet take on Marions card, and especially perfect for a sympathy design. I would love to do the Copic class too but there is not enough time... can't wait to see your creations!
