GDT - Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge

Hi everyone,

I hope you've had a good week and are planning something fun for the weekend.

A few weeks ago I was selected to be the very first Guest Designer for
 I'm so excited for this honour and can't wait to show you what I've made.
The theme for the month of May is Lace
I've been a fan of Ching-Chou Kuik's work for a long time. 
  Some of my very first posts when I started blogging were
cards made with her wooden stamps.
Now I have a large digital collection...all waiting for precious colouring time.

I was given my choice of image for the challenge and decided on one I didn't have 
and that is  Petals of Rainbow available here.
I thought this would give me a chance to practice colouring flowers.
