Stampin' Up! Australia - Dynamic Duos #63 - Best of Flowers

Dear Stampin' friends,

Do you think this card is very 'me'?.....I'm not sure that it is clean & simple enough, but I really loved this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and it seemed to call for a few layers.

At Dynamic Duos this week, we are playing with these colours....

So I did this..... 


It gave me the opportunity to use the hydrangea image from  Stampin' Up!'s 'Best of Flowers'...it is so pretty when it is watercoloured. I used my Pear Pizzazz marker to deepen the colour in the middle of the flowers.

Let me know what you think....are layers my thing!?

Be sure to visit the Dynamic Duos Design Team for colour inspiration.....
