Challenge #297 @ Fab'n'Funky

Hi everyone,
I'm back after a lovely holiday in Florida with our daughter and her family.
We had record breaking warm weather that was great for swimming and enjoying
the sunshine. Tough to come home to the cold...brrrrr!  ...and piles of laundry!
but a small price to pay.  I hope to be catch up with everyone this week after
 my work is done.  I've missed you all !

Today starts a new challenge at
where our lovely, talented Wendy is hosting for the week and has chosen
"Flowers" as the theme. I know Wendy has a beautiful garden so I'm not
surprised she has chosen this theme.

This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Lemon Shortbread


I'm using a card for the challenge that I've coloured with copics some time ago using
Aurora Wings image "rose corner 2" 

 DP is from an old Stampin Up collection, ribbon from my stash
Ranger Glossy accents added to the petals to represent dew

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge #25 - Anything Goes 

Thanks for stopping by today.
