Bloomin' Border


This week's One Layer Wednesday is hosted by Heather, who has challenged us to create a card with a border as the image.

I've used an image from my new Penny Black winnings.  I stamped the image repeatedly across the bottom of the card so that the curved base didn't show, then coloured with Tombows, deliberately leaving random white space in the flowers.  Then I drew in some grass, and edged all the flowers with a beige Tombow to soften the scene.  I thought I'd stamp the sentiment in matching pink, rather than black.

The cue word at CASology this week is:


And the challenge at Simon Says is Flower Power, with a $50 voucher on offer:
