World Cardmaking Day with Flourishes



 
Welcome to World Card Making Day at Flourishes 2013! We thought it would be especially fun and fitting to extend a challenge that has to do with your corner of the Cardmaking World! So, here goes: Create something that represents or is inspired by your state or province. We're leaving the interpretation up to you but you could be inspired by your state or province flower, your slogan, the scenery you'll find there, colors, or your state or provincial flag. Then make sure you describe to us what the connection is! Fun right?

I chose to use the Flourishes set Picking Wildflowers because I seriously LOVE flowers, and the wildflowers here in California are simply stunning in the spring.  I have quite a collection of photographs.  All the flowers in this image can be found in our foothills in the Spring.  Although the California Poppy is orange.  The last time I colored this image, I did it in orange and wanted to try it in red this time.  It's stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Colored with Copics.
