Color me blue.....and yellow.....

Hello everyone and welcome to THE FLOWER CHALLENGE's first challenge of 2017!!!!!
We hope your Holidays were filled with the warmth and love of family and friends, good food, delicious bubbly and lots of gifts, I'm wishing all of you, Health, Peace, Love, Joy and Prosperity for 2017!!
In this new challenge we want you to use the color BLUE and the color YELLOW on your cards, remember, the main focus on them should be the flowers. Here is my card that I hope inspire you to join us in the gallery.

This image is from an old Flourishes set called "Lenten Rose", (now you can get this image in digital form over at Power Poppy if you'd like)
I stamped the image onto a panel of Strathmore multi media paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, the aqua painter and added shadows and highlights with my Prismacolor pencils.
The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from the set.
The pretty punched detail is from a super old Friskars punch.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

This sentiment is one of my favorites and it's from an old Flourishes set called "Orchids".
Please read our rules, they are few but important and also, please use the banner bellow when entering your card on the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know that I appreciate this more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Ahhh Maria such a beautiful card, love your colouring of this stamped image. What a beautiful stamp and that flower head fallen onto the table just a perfect finish as is the butterfly.

I also like the way you finished the inside...I need to start doing that more.

Beautiful card and such gorgeous coloring! I adore Power Poppy images and you've done this Flourishes/Power Poppy one total justice.

An absolutely gorgeous card Maria, and I love that the flower has added dimension and there is a butterfly in the corner. It's the little details like that and the sentiment on the inside that finish it so beautifully. xx
