Virginia's Challenge




The lovely Virginia has a challenge running on her site called "Beat the Winter Blah" The card is ment to cheer someone up during the winter weather and it must have something different on it. It can be a special/new technique, colour combo, unique embellishment or an original design. Well for me these flowers are still a new technique, but I have got to say I am hooked on them. I love the texture they create to a card, also I would not necessarily put pink and orange together but I think it works this time!
