Blog Candy Reminder

Hi my lovely followers and visitors, just a quick reminder about the Blog Candy Giveaway Challenge that is happening over at Fresh Brewed Designs. There is still time to enter and win. Remember this particular challenge is ANYTHING GOES using a FBD image. For all the rules and details, please click HERE.

I have created a centre step card with a fun garden scene using the following FBD images, DAISY KITTEN, DAFFODIL and DAFFODIL & DAISY.

The images have been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The design paper is from BasicGrey. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The bling are from my stash.  The folded tree has been created with circle punches. The images have been paper pieced as well.

I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

· Artistic Inspirations - ATG or Monochrome
