Renee's birthday card

So glad I got my gardening done yesterday - we've had a whole night of lashing rain, some heavy showers between the sun and it's now chucking down hailstones!  My day off was spent out shoe shopping for a wedding, not easy when you're a half size and hardly anyone makes 'em!  So about 40 pairs of shoes later (I point blank refuse to buy shoes that aren't comfy!), I got sorted in the last shop I was going to, and actually had a choice to pick from.  Now why didn't I go in to that one at the beginning? ;)

This card is for my Aunt - using Lavender Bouquet that was part of a recent candy win from Taylored Expressions.  Lavender didn't go with my colour theme, so I thought if I coloured them yellow they might look like lupins?  Coloured with pencils, lime stickles added to the tiny flowers in the image and some green and yellow flowersoft for the grass.

Layout from Sketch'n Stash #114
Sketchy Colors #165 - lime green, yellow and white
By the Cute and Girly May challenge - flowers

Beautiful basket of yellow flowers. Lupins, lavender..whichever, they are so pretty.

I'm a half size, too, and it seems recently anything I like doesn't come in 1/2's. Maybe we should protest the world over. haha
