Eclectic Ellapu October: Flowers

Woohoo! It's October! Let's make it a good one, shall we? With that in mind we're kicking off the month Eclectic Ellapu's October challenge. The theme for the Pink Team is "Flowers" and the Purple Team's brief is "Texture Paste / Embossing". You can choose to play with either team or both.

I made a thank you card with featuring pink Rosa Canina (Dog Rose).  I found this picture of the dog rose in Wikimedia Commons and tried to colour the stamped image in pretty much the same way. Not a perfect match but almost there!

Here's my card:

This a small card: 4"x3". The greeting is from CB's Pretty Poppies and the rose is 
from Pretty Birdcage.

Here's a close-up of the dog rose. I coloured it with Graph'It markers and placed
a pearl in the middle of one rose.

Challenges for this card:


Deep Ocean Challenge #87: At Least One Flower
{PIN}spirational #125: Anything Could Happen
PPinky Dolls: AG/ Make It Girly
The Pink Elephant #270: AG
Graph'It Colouring Crazy #38: Pink
Cupcake Inspiration #280: Photo
Gem Of A Challenge #129: CAS

Now it's your turn to create and link up your labour of love over at the Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog. Remember, we have 2 concurrent challenges: "Flowers" for the Pink Team and "Texture Paste / Embossing" for the Purple Team. You can enter one or both challenges as many times as you wish, but make sure you link up your projects by 11:59pm GMT on 31 October 2014.

That's all from me for now. Thank you so much for dropping in today and have a lovely day!

Beijinhos!

  3. Beautiful coloring and Dog Rose : ) Speaking of Dog Rosie... I know you said at the end of the month we'd get an update and you haven't said anything so I assume you don't know more yet but wanted you to know I was thinking of you and her and anxious to hear a good report : )
