Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Pink, Turquoise and a hint of Brown

Hello everyone. I'm so pleased it's another beautiful day and today I have a morning to myself as my son is at nursery. I know, I know, I should be outside and not in front of the computer!

I wasn't sure whether to post this card as I'm not too pleased with it. I chose which colours I was going to use for the image and as usual got carried away colouring in and grabbed the wrong blue - I tried to remove the colour with a blender pen but wasn't too successful - however, saying all that, looking at the picture it doesn't look too bad!

Well, here it is and I'm entering it in this week's Secret Crafter Challenge which is Pink, Turquoise and a hint of Brown.

The pink and turquoise are fairly obvious and for the Brown I have stamped the image and sentiments using Memento Rich Cocoa ink, Daisy is also wearing a brown belt.
I've coloured some of the flowers on the Dovecraft DP in very pale pink.
Instead of cutting the image out with a circle nestie, I cut an apeture in the DP with the circle and placed it over the image.
I've also added a bit to the inside of the card.

I've used:
Stamp: Sugar Nellie "Daisy"
Coloured with: Copics
DP: Dovecraft
Sentiments: Elzybells "Family Messages" and "Everyday Messages"
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. Enjoy your day.
