Have a Wonderful Day

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Carla Aerts - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with a free Blossom Bliss colouring page from STAMPlorations (thank you, Shery!). STAMPlorations is celebrating National Colouring Book Day (August 2), with a new colouring book, free colouring page, and blog hop!  I'm no colouring expert but I had fun with my markers!  In between the flowers I sponged on Distress Ink (I think it was Squeezed Lemonade) and added some dots with a black marker.  I also added white dots on some of the flower centers.

I recently won the June Apple Blossom Collection magazine kit from Liz at Buttons for Brains (thank you, Liz!), and I thought it went well with the floral panel I coloured. I used several products from the kit (see list below).


Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Apple Blossom Collection kit)
Distress Ink:  Squeezed Lemonade (sponged between the flowers)
Dies:  Scalloped Sentiment Banner (Apple Blossom Collection kit), Elizabeth Crafts Small Butterfly
Embossing folder:  Apple Blossom Collection kit
Other:  Cupped floral sequins

I would like to support these fun challenges: Butterfly Challenge Spin the Butterfly Wheel with the Letter F (I went with F for Flowers and butterfly) 1/3; Crop Stop Link Party 42 (Distress Inks can be purchased at Crop Stop here) 1/5; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; DL.ART August AG Linky 1/d; Little Patch of Crafty Friends AG 1/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; STAMPlorations Blossom Bliss and National Colouring Book Day 1/3; STAMPlorations Summer CUTplorations UE; STAMPlorations Summer Theme and Sketch - Stamps and AG UE; STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge; The Daily Marker 30-Day Colouring Contest UE; Tuesday Throwdown AG 1E; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 5/5

Your skills are more good than you think, Kitty!! :D Fabulous colouring on the flowers and the background!!! Great design too, love your card so much!! Sweet details with the delicate butterfly and the flower sequins!
I bought that magazine just because of the Apple Blossom set :D LOL because I love all this style of AB folders, they are very useful, especially with the coordinated waved die and the sentiment! But I haven't used yet! :(
