Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Flowers

Here is the card I made for the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge this week.It was such a change to make a non-Christmas card. This weeks challenge was to use flowers or floral paper so I used both. I love this paper. It is a 12 x 12 piece from daisyds paper. Such beautiful colors and there is even a small parrot like bird in the design but it doesn`t show on this piece.
I used the Magnolia image Picking Flowers and colored it to match the paper. I used my favorite Primacolored pencils with OMS to color and cut it out with the middle oval nestibility and my cuttlebug. The scalloped layer is the flip side of the blue paper also from daisyd. Both of these papers are lovely.
As you can see I used Prisma Flowers and brads. I was very happy to find the correct colors in my stash. I don`t have many so it was great to find something that worked.
Well it is 2:08 am and I am pooped. DH comes home this afternoon so I will finally sleep in a bed tomorrow night. I sleep in a hospital bed for my back and there is just not enough room for myself and three dogs. When DH is home at least one sleeps with him but when he is away they just pace and fight. I find it easier to stay in the family room and sleep in the lazy boy. My back loves this but I just can`t sleep as well. Too many noises and the TV is there calling me to watch it way into the morning.
Off I go to the chair. Talk tomorrow.

Votre belle carte me rappelle le ramoneur dans le film de Disney "Mary Poppins". Le vôtre est magnifique et je l'adore les couleurs et les fleurs trop!

Ooooops! J'ai oublié de dire que je suis aussi votre amour du Père Noël et ange trop! Votre peinture est très belle. Je ne parle pas français et je suis donc l'aide d'un traducteur de Google que j'ai sur mon blog. J'espère que c'est assez précis. Si non, je m'excuse.
