Crafty Ann's Challenge, Use a digi and your favourite colouring medium

Hi there, Friday at last and if Mr Blogger plays nicely and posts this for me, I'll be on my way to a conference and counting down to the weekend lol. The new challenge over at Crafty Ann's is to use a digi image and your favourite colouring medium. I've used this beautiful iris image from Crafty Ann's and promarkers (I do love watercolour pencils but always seem to get a better result with promarkers).

I've also used a beautiful lilac woodgrain bp from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop for the base card and punched some flowers out using a woodware punch and inked the edges with DI. I punched two borders from lilac and beige polished stone bps (again from Crafty Ann's) using a MS punch.The lilac gingham ribbon and pearls arefrom my stash. I wrapped the corners of the image with more gingham ribbon and added one of Crafty Ann's ticket sentiments to finsh the card off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Southern Girls: 4 layers of patterned paper (backing paper, 2 layers of punched border and the flowers punched from scraps of the backing paper)
Pollycraft: Anything goes
Creative Card Crew: blooming marvellous
Paper Players: Monochromatic
Sketch Saturday: I've used this sketch with different shapes - hope that counts :-)

Thanks for calling by, I can't wait to see what your favourite colouring medium is
