It's a Happy Whatever Kinda Day with Pink Gem Designs

Hello everyone wishing you all a happy Friday... I hope that your week is going ok.  We had a lovely lunch out on Wednesday with friends at a Chinese restaurant on the coast - its been more than 15 years since we last had one and I had forgotten how much I love Chinese food!  We'll definitely be going back.

Today I am sharing a card that I have made for for Pink Gem Designs using a digital stamp from the Freesias digital stamp set .  

I absolutely love freesias, their perfume is beautiful and ours in the garden here are in currently in bloom so when I saw this new set of digital stamps I knew I had to make a card with it.

Its a fabulous set and includes 23 black Line art images but for today I have chose to use the flowers in a glass vase, for a single layer card.  

My favourite colours of Freesias are yellow and magenta as I love the contrast of these two colours and I have have used my promarkers to colour these today adding distress ink on the panel for extra details.  

I added a digital sentiment from the Polkadoodles Winnie Daisy Fairy Greeting bundle to my panel before printing out on alcohol marker friendly paper. 

I had lots of fun colouring the water in the vase on this image and I'm really pleased with the effect

I really hope that you like my card today and it would be lovely if you you leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Hasta luego ๐Ÿ‘‹ 

Enjoy the rest of your day !
