Gathering Flowers

This is my DT card for the latest Willow Sketchie Challenge:


This week Kelly has provided us with this fab sketch:


and she has chosen the theme:

Things Outside

This could be something to do outside, something that lives outside or a view from outside etc., so plenty of scope there.

Don't forget you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.

As you can see I have rotated the sketch and also followed the theme.  I have used one of Sharon's latest digi stamps - Busy in the garden - available from the Willow Designs Store and coloured her with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The papers are from the Polly Picklebery CD also available from the store, please see the card recipe for full details of everything I have used.

I didn't have any green card stock to match so I coloured some with the same ProMarker that I used to colour the image and then used this for the ribbled corner, punched leaves and punched elements of the flowers.

I have decorated the inside of my card:
