Fresh Bouquet

Hi everyone, its time for another monthly challenge at House of Cards, this months theme is: 
 
Add a bird and/or colors.
 
  
 I was inspired by the colors. 

My image is  Fresh Bouquet from Inspired by Stamping.  I embossed the bouquet and then colored it with my Koh-I-Nor pencils inspired by a tutorial I saw on Inspired by Stamping. 

Close up below:
 
Check out the creations by the talented design team at House of Cards and I  hope you will join this months challenge.
 
A few fun challenges:

Very pretty card... I love when a card can be used (with a change of sentiment) for multiple occasions. Glad you got to try something new with us at Shopping Our Stash!
