BEAUTIFUL DAY

Before I left for London in early April, I stamped a bunch of flowers for coloring so I'd have something to do while Mike and Sarah were at work and the girls were in school.  I got a lot of practice in and now have quite a stash for card starters.



The beautiful day flower and leaves were stamped on gray paper for coloring.  I first did a layer of white before doing the shading.  The background stripes were cut from the same color paper as the flower.

I am entering this in The Paper Players tic-tac-toe challenge (flower, yellow, birthday), Cas-ual Fridays (April showers bring May flowers) and LaVon's LOVE challenge (anything goes). 


Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments.
