Carefree Cosmos

 I am not a gardener, no sireeeee... no way, but I do love flowers.  Just can't grow them but they are so beautiful and I admire those who have a green thumb and have those gorgeous beauties growing in their gardens.  Can't grow 'em so I'll stamp 'em instead!  This is Carefree Cosmos from Technique Tuesday and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make it mine!
Copic colours used were RV66, RV63, RV02, RV000 and then I added some dots with Bisque Liquid Pearls.
The snow here is finally melting... this has to be one of the longest winters ever and I am not sorry to see it go.  Have a great week.
Challenges:
Bearly Mine - Spring Flowers
One Crazy Stamper - Black, white and one more
Allsorts - Passion for flowers
Crafts 4 Eternity - April Showers bring spring flowers

Marilyn, this looks like a painting!! Gorgeous! Love the colors of that flower.
I can't grow flowers either - veggies, yes - but flowers just shrivel up on me.
Love your stunning card!

You know, Marilyn, Cosmos is one of my most favourite flowers and you have coloured this perfectly. Cosmos, fortunately, is also one of the easiest flowers to grow! We still have some snow here, too and it's much too cold to be in the garden, so my flower seeds (including cosmos) are on my kitchen window-sill. Hugs xx
