Isabella's Sketchbook - Petunias

hi there,
as you are reading this (if its after 6:30am and before noon) I am driving to Greensboro, NC to hook up with my BFF, Jennie Harper! We are going to do some "damage" at her LSS (woooo hoooo!!) and then have some lunch together. After that, I head on to Charlotte to meet one of my daughters who will join me for the night. Then Sunday - I am so excited - the Copic Certification class!  so when I return Sunday night - I will be "certifiably certified" LOL....

this card is done with Isabella's beautiful image called Petunias . We have these gorgeous deep purple ones with the black centers in the gardens at one of the properties I manage...really enjoyed coloring them!!

added the buttons at the last minute so I can enter it in the Cupcake Craft Challenges which is to use "buttons"....
there is lilac glitter in areas of the flowers, the dp is Basic Grey's Kioshi, cardstock is SU's Always Artichoke and Lilac (I reversed the colors on the mats)....

Hope this inspires you - and that you have a chance to use an Isabella image for the beautful color challenge over at Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge this week.

Have a beautiful blessed weekend,
