Life is a Garden

     This beautiful girl surrounded by zinnias is from Ching-Chou Kuik and I've returned to one of my more usual color combos, something with purple, blue, or pink.  However, still in the interest of branching out and trying new things, I added yellow to the pink, a color I rarely use except for fall themed cards.

Although I took a bit of a liberty with it, my card was
 inspired by the 'quilted' background in the sketch at

Colored with ProMarkers
Image cut with Sue Wilson die
Background hand-pieced using Spellbinders dies
