This Is What Happens When .....

......... you don't think an idea through properly!  Morning all, hope you are having a happy, sunny, Saturday so far.  After a week of searing heat, thunder storms and sudden downpours I am hoping that today's sunshine is going to stay around for a few hours at least.

PENNY BLACK AT ALLSORTS July Challenge is Flower Power and I thought I would use the same stamp that I used bits of for last week's Less Is More challenge.  It's from the Penny Black Flower Gallery clear set and it's so pretty.

But this is where the idea when a bit doolally.  I settled on colouring it in Copics, and having tried out various colours I ended up with lilac.  Nothing wrong with that I hear you say.  No, true enough, lilac is a very pretty colour, but my card has ended up like a sympathy card, which wasn't the original intention!

I thought I would add some pearls to try and lift it a bit, but now it just looks like a Victorian sympathy card.

Me thinks I shall have another go at the challenge and make something more cheerful!

Hugs, Sxx
