The Flower Challenge #60

Hi everyone.  Time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge (#60).  We are so excited to have Kailash (Kailash Crafts) as our Guest Designer this month.  Welcome Kailash!

I LOVE turquoise and was so happy when I saw this challenge!  I started by stamping Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia (WPlus 9) in Versamark and heat embossing in Princess Gold.  I then watercoloured the flower and leaves with Zig markers.  Love the bright colours.

To finish, I gold heat embossed the sentiment Cosmos - retired (Technique Tuesday) and added a gold and white diagonal strip washi tape to the bottom of the card.

I hope you'll check out the challenge blog to see the fantastic cards from our Designers, and our amazing Guest Designer, Kailash.  Hope to see you in the gallery!

A perfect challenge for you, Loll, since you love turquoise. What beautiful colouring, especially with the gold embossing outlining it! Great use of the gold and white tape along the bottom.
