Cuppa Posies:)

Here's a card to whisk the winter blues away! I hope:)
I was inspired by the Blues and Gold colors from the 
Here's my card:
I've been enjoying the coloring challenge at The Daily Marker #thedailymarker30day.


Here is a close up of the details.

Using Neenah solor white cardstock,
I started out by stamping and masking the cup from Hey, Mama Elephant and flowers from Altenew Floral Motifs and leaves and branches from Altenew Doodle Blooms. Then I colored with both Distress ink markers and Zig Clean Color Brush markers. The Butterfly is a Painted Butterfly from Altenew as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just to let you know; This was one of those pieces that I worked on for hours and almost threw away..(sometimes setting a project aside for a time is good, then gets fresh hope later.)
After a few days, I added more detail with the ziggys  which made it more to my liking:)

EDITED:  Excited to be featured at
