I Picked Tuliphedgie for my project.

The background paper was from my scrapbook stash that I really need to start using. 
The cute little image was coloured using spectrum noir  alcohol pens 
These are the colours I used: FS1, FS3, CG1, CG4, PP3, PL1, PL4, TN5, GB1, GB3, GB5, GB8, TB1, DR1, DR4, IG1, and IG3, also used a white pen. 

Coloured and cut the tulip and ladybird again to use as an embellishment, faux stitched the oblong shapes, then used wonky lines on the edge of the main backing paper. 

Had great fun making and colouring this card, hope you like it
