Lovely Blooms...Just Us Girls Challenge #447~Wild Card Week


Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #447~Wild Card Week, where our wonderful Vicki has decided to open the floodgates with an 'Anything Goes' theme! In addition, she's giving away a prize (random draw) if we get over 75 entries! Enter as often as you want and...go WILD!!

If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our June Guest Designer, ever-so-talented Hannelie Bester (THANK YOU so much for sharing your incredible talents with us this month, Hannelie!)  - and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.

Today, I'm sharing two cards, the panels designed over the course of the 30 Day Colouring Challenge. Inspiration for the left one came from Michelle, of The Card Grotto fame; the second (on the right) was my attempt to try some colour blends of my own, inspired by the current book cover over at The Library Challenge #10~The Rose Garden.  Still a HUGE learning curve with my zigs! Haven't given up on them just yet *grin*

NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to receive Librarian's Choice recognition, alongside two other designers. THANK YOU!

Looking forward to seeing your *Anything Goes* creations in the gallery!

Gorgeous floral card and love the colours you've used for your flowers.
Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Marina said...

How totally gorgeous these are! Fabulous colours. I find the Zigs are quite different to use from alcohol markers - a bit more challenging for me, but the colours are so vibrant. You used them perfectly here. Thanks for joining The Library.
