Colour Create Challenge Card

This is the card I made for the challenge over at Colour Create. The card was to be in peach and aqua with the option of adding DIY flowers.
It gave me the chance to use one of my new sketches as the main image.

I have used
white hammered cardstock
aqua card
shabbyprincess paper

my own hand drawn image coloured with Promarkers

Xcut punch hearts

ribbon from stash

and the flower at the top in the middle is made of 5 oval gems

I hope it fits the bill!!
