Pretty Peony

Whilst I had a wonderful time away in Wales, it was brilliant to be back, crafting with the girlies on a Monday night!  This week the theme was pink and green, my favourite colour combo, I even got married in shell pink and sage green!
This lovely peony image is a free digi from Beccy's Place, do check out her blog for wonderful images, many of them free.  I used the washout function in Word to create an image with a very faint outline, perfect for colouring without hard black lines.  It's been coloured, of course, with Promarkers.
Everything else is Papermania.  I bought the latest goody bag just before and I went on holiday and was desperate to play with it, so I used the Capsule Collection papers and Blitters from it on this project.  I just love how all the Capsule Collection colours mix and match so well, I used paper from the pink pack in with the green.
The sentiment stamp is from the Lucy Cromwell range, I love the almost handwritten script.

 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Great Impressions - colouring
That Craft Place - anything goes
Di's Digi Designs - flowers
The Poodle's Parlour - use a digi
Paper Pretties - #214 - try a new technique, I used the washout function for digi stamps for the first time
