YOU ARE ALL INVITED!!!!!

Hello dear friends: Today is a very, very special day for me. I have been invited by my dear friend Aileen Ryan from Colour and Sparkle  to be one of the members of the Design Team for a brand new Challenge Blog she created called The Flower Challenge, this request was immediately answered by a loud and clear YES, YES shout across the miles from me. I started this little blog of mine on December of 2014 and it has grown by leaps and bounds, I'm learning a ton of new things about blogging and, well.....here I am, on the Designer Team of this awesome challenge blog, in the company of some of the most talented, creative ladies I've ever met, this is an honor and a thrill for me, one that I will strive deserve, as I embark on this Journey along with my teammates.
The main focus of this Challenge Blog will be FLOWERS, so to get us started here is my card for our very first challenge post, the theme is "ANYTHING GOES", just remember to make flowers the main focus of your cards.  Here is mine, hope you like it and join us in the gallery, we can't wait to see your creations.
The Flower Challenge



This gorgeous image is from a Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley called Everything's Even Rosier.
I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, the aqua painter and Prismacolor pencils. The patter papers are from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from the set and the butterfly is from SU Papillon Potpourri. 
**********************************************************************
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the set and the roses from a very old Flourishes set.

Thank you so much for stopping by, for more inspiration, please hop over my teammates blogs to see their beautiful creations and then, join us for our first challenge in the gallery. 
Happy Stamping.
