The flower image remained unused and uncoloured, buried somewhere in my stash. But every now and then, I had yellow/orange flowers on my mind. Now - in a seizure of creativity - I took out the digi and my coloured pencils to finally get the project done.
For a while, I couldn't think of matching background paper, until I remembered remains of a green flower-power paper I used ages ago.
In addition, I used a yellow card base - another thing I absolutely had to have, but never used later. Now, the tiny yellow border seemed to match the outside of the card, while I decided to cover the bright background with a sheet of white on the inside. To make the image stand out from the bright background, I used two different kind of green papers, 3D paper pads and motive scissors to spice up one edge of the paper.
As I was obviously in recycling mood, I decided to use pearls that remained after various crafting projects - huge perals, single pearl leftovers and pearls in unusual colours that didn't seem to fit anywhere.
To add a little colour on the inside, I added a raffia ribbon that I gently attatched on the side and formed to a bow. Believe it or not, it's just another recycled piece I received lately wrapped around a booklet of my former student residence.
In the end, some of the footprints sunshine left in our garden this year. Have a lovely week ;)
