Bloom Where You're Planted

This card is from my Bella Binge a few weeks ago. Sadly, I have not had a chance to stamp in a week or so. Hopefully I'll sneak some time for ME this weekend between DH's business trips! I just love Veggiebella, and here she is, fresh from the garden...
I used Target DP, scraps of orange and green and white for the sentiment. The flower brads are Making Memories. The ribbon is pieces of scrap from my stash. Bella is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended. Notice how I'm not coloring in the entire image anymore, but trying to use shading? I doodled around the white spaces with my orange gel pen. The sentiment is from Anita's, found at Michael's a few years ago. She just makes me want to drag out the gardening books and start planning, even though it's freezing here today!

Off to grab some dinner. Thanks for looking!

Wow, love it. I'm always too scared to use bright colours on my cards. Maybe I'll have to give it go now I've seen this.
