Birthday Flowers

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for the week is Sparkle N Sprinkle

And here is the card I created:
This is such a beautiful image and the file also comes with a single bloom and two sentiments, plus the images in color.  For this card, I used the uncolored main image.  I just haven't dared use a pre-colored image yet.  I did some outside the box fussy cutting for the main image.  Love that technique!

Beautiful coloring and just the right sketch challenge for this image, and your fussy-cutting outside the oval is excellent, and I love this technique too. Thanks for sharing again with us at Double Trouble, and even with the layering you might be a candidate for an out-of-the-box sketch #302 for AHSC...think about it.

I too have been hesitant to use pre-colored; and I think in the years I've been doing cards I have only done it once. I did a floral that I layered different parts for a great dimensional and needed the coloring of several of the same image, which was a lot of work in itself deciding which parts of the flower were the next I may do it again. Ummmm that sounds good to me I think it may be time to do another

Very nice coloring of the image. I used a pre-colored image before when I wasn't going anywhere with my coloring of the image. I felt I was not giving justice to the beautiful image supplied by the challenge sponsor so I treated the pre-colored image as an embellishment. Thank you for sharing you creation with us @ Incy Wincy Designs Make It Girly Challenge. Good luck!
