Cute Card Thursday & Colour Create & MAWTT & Charisma Cardz

Hi girls. We had a better day weather wise yesterday so today's bright card is not entirely out of place. I also had a great time in the afternoon with my blogging and crafting pal Kathleen from The Daisy Chain. It's worth a visit to her blog if you have the time. It's great to have you dropping in here. I hope that you find something to help your creative juices.
Well the card is being entered into four challenges - a bit of a record for me I think. Cute Card Thursday gave us a great sketch, Colour Create was a colour combo of Lemon, Green & White, Moving Along With The Times had the theme of "Spring" and Charisma Cardz had the subject of "Valentine/Love".
The image is one of the new Lili of the Valley's called "Love Grows" and I coloured it using my trusty Copics. The papers are by Magnolia Ink and Stampin Up with Bazzil as a mount. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash.
I enjoyed making this card so I hope you might have some feedback to give me by way of a comment. I love reading your opinions of my cards. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.

  13. Aww Fiona this is a beautiful card, lovely image and great colours. Makes a nice change to see a 'love' image not in pink or red, these colours means it could be used for a number of occasions.
