Summer Flowers

Lee Murphy is the hostess for the Mod Squad Challenge this week. She made it easy for us because we just have to color something and use summer colors.  I laughed at Lee because she said she needed more coloring time because it was so therapeutic.  I can relate to that!  I frequently color in the evenings when something is on my mind or when my husband is watching something ho-hum on television. A while back  I was coloring and he asked if I was stressed or bored.  That night I was bored.  A few nights ago he said he was unsettled about something but he didn't know what or why so I asked him if he wanted me to get him something to color.  He declined, but he just does not know what he is missing.  The flower on this card is a freebie from Beccy's Place.  If you have not visited her web cite, you should. She has some awesome tutorials, a fabulous store. a monthly challenge,and lots of beautiful freebies. I colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers.  Both the card and and the die are sponged with Memento pear tart and Bahama blue.  I put some beads on some floral wire to make my own rendition of a hat pin for embellishment and tucked in a little lace. You can see Lee's challenge and card sample along with other entries here.
