 Morning Everyone,

It's time for the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It and we are asking whether you prefer soft or bold colours on your projects.

When I make floral cards I like them to be bold, especially when they're against a white background. The white enhances the colours and makes them stand out more.

I love pansies and all their different colours. I've cut my dies with white card and coloured with a mixture of Altenew inks and Distress Oxides.  The leaves were cut from green cardstock and shaded with copics.  The arch die is from Spellbinders and the sentiment is a small Creative Expressions one cut in gold mirri card.

We don't have a sponsor for this fortnight so just playing for fun.

I would like to enter:

Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
A Place to Start - Add one or more flowers
Beautiful Blossoms - A/G Floral
Simon Says Weds - Feminine
Paper Fundays - Flower Shoppe
Double D - Pretty Florals for Mum

Thank you for visiting and I will be back soon.
