One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Just Us Girls Colour Challenge

Just us Girls Challenge this week is a Colour Challenge.
I loved the colors:  hot pink, turquoise and mustard!
I used my copics to practice some more shading and flowers!
This is what I used:
You can see I used the hot pink colors, even though my card looks more red...hmm, must be operator error!!  *wink
I did some selective die cutting that I saw  on the MFT Blog

stamps & Dies:  Sugar Pea Designs:  Enchanted Garden
Impression Obession: Thin Stripes
I hope you will join in this challenge, the design team has some fabulous cards to inspire you!!

Heart Hugs, friends!
