A Beautiful Day OLC.....

Hello dear blogging friends: It's time for a new challenge over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE and this time it's a ONE LAYER CARD.
I've been having a lot of fun coloring with my Prismacolor pencils and I love the way they look on Kraft card stock so, I cut a card base with it and stamped my images. I did a bit of masking to be able to accommodate my flowers on the edge of the panel.  I hope this card inspires you to come and join my teammates and me in the gallery.

This images are from an Altenew set called BEAUTIFUL DAY, stamped several times with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I went over the stamens with a brown thin marker, the sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called POTTED PRIMROSES, the border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details", the corner flowers from the Altenew set.

I hope you have a bit of time to come and play along with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, my teammates and I can't wait to see what you create.
Please read our rules, they are few but important,  include our logo on your post when you link up your card to the gallery, you can only link your card to 6 other challenges, make sure FLOWERS are the main focus on your creations.

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