Flowers

I'm a bit down to the wire with this one - but at least I made it before the month finished!  Although I have just gone to upload it and discovered that I didn't actually use June's image like I intended to do!  That is kind of the story of my life at the moment!

I won Challenge 193 but don't have Facebook so e-mailed one of the DT (hopefully the correct e-mail addy) and also left a comment on the winners' post but so far have had no response.  I'm writing this here in the hope that one of the DT will read this.

My card for this challenge is a bit on the late side due to internet issues over the past couple of days.  I am away from home and relying on mobile internet which wasn't allowing me to connect to the internet.  I got some good tech advice and now have it up and running so playing catch up a bit!

Anyhow, this card is inspiration for the challenge at CHNC.  The optional challenge this week is to add washi tape.




I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps called Christmas Doodles.   Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  I added an offcut piece of a christmas paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft to the bottom of the card and added a strip of striped washi tape.
