CAS Mix UP June Challenge Jump Start Copic

I saw a very cool technique that Loll reminded me I love, so I used my new Essentials by Ellen: Mondo Hydrangea and used my copics because I took Sandy Allnocks Jump Start Class and I needed to color this image.
I stamped the flower, did a little masking for the leaf, then I die cut with a Lil' Inkers Stitched rectangle die.  I colored only the smaller rectangle with copics...added a few falling petals too. I adhered that smaller piece with foam.
You only have until the 24th to make a card for this challenge!
Go HERE to check out all the inspiration.

Heart Hugs, friends!
