January- Corcus Flower

Happy Monday everyone-
I've had a very good day today.  The weather permitted for a scroll by the harbor with the boys.
I even had time to get crafty!!
I LOVE how the colors of this card.  The image is from Flourishes: A Year in Flower 1.
I used a color challenge and a sketch challenge for this beauty.
I have SO MANY stamps that I have not inked up, because I have become to so comfortable with reaching for my digital images.  So what I have done is, randomly picked a few sets from my box and I have to create something with them within the month.  If I don't, then I have to either sell them or give them away.
Sounds fair right?!  We will see how that works out.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by today. 
See you again tomorrow for a SweetStamps challenge.
