Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 118

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 118: anything goes with a twist ... Mothering Sunday. Please click on the link to see lovely designs by others in the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For my card I've used the Star Stampz English lady image (Star Stampz are sponsoring the challenge), coloured with spectrum noir pens, tearing the image using a perspex oval template and inking the edge. The background was cut from a sample piece of wallpaper that I've had for ages with a  scrap strip of unknown paper. Other items from stash (Hobbycraft flower).

  20. The image is lovely Hazel, and you've coloured it beautifully. I like the texture you got by tearing the oval rather than cutting it... the ink over the top really highlights the torn edge. The background paper is very pretty and I like the ribbon and flower too.

  21. Such a beautiful creation. Love your image and the colours you have chosen.
    Thank you for sharing with us over here at Crafty Friends Challenge #25 and best of luck with your entry.
