I've been waiting for a chance to use this sweetpea digi image since I came home from holiday. I drew it in my nephew's garden and thought I would get a lot of use from it for various cards I had to make when I got home...but this is the first chance I've had.
You can see it HERE on A Passion for Stamps.

The embossing folder I've used is a new one which I bought on holiday too - it's Creative Expressions, Lattice EF002 .
I've coloured the flower with Promarkers...Carmine and Ruby, Apple Green and Forest Green. Then highlighted with a white gel pen.
