Flower Pots

Spring is on it's way, I think?  some of the flower seem to be struggling to bloom with the recent cold weather here in Yorkshire.....

I've made this card with my mother in law in mind, she loves her flower pots :)

The image I'm using today for my inspiration is called Flower Pots - you can find it here in Wendy's Etsy shop

Putting into practice some of my recent lessons I've sketched in a simple background of a fence and a few clouds.  I've then coloured it using Copics.  The birds were added using a Copic liner pen. 

I've cut the image just short of the card so I could add it to make a single layer card.  Nice a light for postage :)

Don't forget we also have a blog challenge themed Anything Goes, but please remember you have to use an All Dressed Up image.

Have a great day!
