Add flowers to your colour challenge at The Outlawz

Good morning friends,
All my blogging friends in the Northern Hemisphere I know you are all eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring, but my goodness we didn't need to have autumn arrive just yet. The last 2 days has been non stop soft rain, no sun and rather cool temps and today has started in the same way. I hope this isn't going to be the last of our summer rains and I am sure we will still have some lovely late summer days, but the  mornings the last week or so have been very 'autumnish'...cool and crisp.

Today is another  colour challenge at The Outlawz.
 The lovely inspirational photo and colours were chosen by
 Roxann with the twist to add flowers.



We are also very lucky to have been given lovely images to work with by Ann from Anne's Digital Art Anne is also sponsoring the prize for the winners this month.

The DT have made beautiful cards for your inspiration, so we challenge you to come and join us. It is a great challenge this week...lovely colours and flowers...now what could be easier.

For my card I have used one of Ann's images - Old ladder with morning glory vine"


I used blue cardstock and the yellow paper I coloured myself. Stamped a flower stamp with Watermark stamp pad and the coloured it with Pan Pastels in 2 shades of yellow.
The image I coloured with Distress ink pads and cut out with a Nellie Snellen MFD, coloured the edges
Punched out flowers in yellow and blue with a pearl drop in the centre
Sentiment from Country crafts and also cut with the MFD mounted with 3D foam pads.

Will enter this in  some challenges.
Come and get it challenge...Flowers galore.
