A Bouquet of Flowers at Dragons Lair Designs

So here we are, May Day and here in Ireland they start their Seasons a month earlier than back home in the UK...
which means that Summer should be here...

after a short heatwave we are back to rain, hail showers and cold winds, the sun is still managing to break through every now and again though.

There are flowers and blossom appearing everywhere, now that I am walking the dog each day, I can actually see them grow and open.

The theme for Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog this month is an appropriate 
Bouquet of Flowers...

For my main image I used 'Flowers for Mum', I think that our friends in the States have their Mother's Day this month and so it seemed a good choice...

I have been practicing more with Craft Artist 2 and my favourite way of crafting at the moment is to make up my own card sheets. I assemble the card digitally and then group together what I want the base layer to be, group the image and any frame etc I want around it (I leave the image uncoloured ready for my promarkers), the image is then moved to the side of the background and any embellishments added to the sheet. 
For this card the base is 2 Oh Baby Mine papers and a ribbon, the image is a punched digi and a punched frame (we are talking digital punching...I love what can be done with it) and then there is a vase of pansies from the Pansy Collection from last month at DLD...


The next step was to colour the image, Promarkers at the ready, I tried to pick out the colours from the pansies and the papers. Having forgotten to add a shadow to the frame, I used a grey promarker to try and make it look a bit more frame like...

Then it was just a case of attacking some foam pads and putting the whole thing together...

So there we are, I hope you like the finished card. All the elements on the card can be found HERE in the Dragons Lair Designs Store. If you would like to enter the challenge, please drop on by to the CHALLENGE BLOG and you can see the beautiful projects done by my fellow design team members...

Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful long weekend and I hope to see you back here soon.

Love and Hugs...
