At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Lacy Sunshine as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Darla Dogwood Blooming Beauty by Lacy Sunshine really is one – a beauty I mean!Must admit as I’ve never coloured one of these delightful images before I hope I’ve done her justice?!Whilst I’m sticking my hand up I really had no idea where I was going with this card either…it certainly wasn’t what I had pictured in my mind 😉 Still I got to use the papers I’d chosen along with the kraft card.I even printed Darla onto some and coloured her with my Spectrum Noir Pencils.The whites of her eyes have been highlighted with gel pen.No dies this time,only punches for the shaped border and corners.The flowers were punched out from another piece of paper from the same pad too.Most dogwood blossom seems to pink or white but I did find some pics of yellow ones too.So with a bit of artistic licence thrown in that’s what we have here 🙂
