I loved this image the moment i stamped it ! its fantastic ! has a lot of scope with coloring . 
I have used promarkers for coloring. I sort of went for the Red head look for tilda and edwin. 

 Here is my floral spray. All the folwers are readymade.
I have used some butterflies and some seam binding in green to tie everything together. 
I am using cartabella papers here. Some circle spellbinders and sizzix dies.

So now that is all laid out for you here is my take on the challenge - 





Well i am preparing for christmas early and i thought what an unusual palette for christmas this will be !! 
We often see those red and green cards for christmas but i really loved using this color palette. 

I really wanted to go for a simple looking but mixed media card. 
Lately i have been hooked to the technique and this seemed the perfect opportunity to explore more. 
I have misted a itsy bitsy chipboard border with gold mist to make it sparkle ! 
And i also have some wood veneer stars on the card :) which kinda support the christmas spirit ! 


The flowers are handmade to fit the palette. 
with berry like beads in the center . I also have a jingle bell for fun ! 

The BG has a watercolor paper on which i have created color drips with my lindy's mists and watercolors. 
There is also some random splatter on the sides. over which i have used some Prima texture paste - white sand. 

 Hope you all enjoyed my card ! 
See u guys soon ! 

Hugs 
PJ
