 Thank goodness its Friday, the weekend is here, lol...Myself and our youngest have been so poorly recently, It will be nice to have hubby around to help out :)  

Its time for my post for Chocolate, Coffee and Cards and our sponsor this fortnight is the wonderful: Whoopsi Daisy

The theme for this challenge is this sketch: 

We had some beautiful images to work with, don't forget to check out the other DT posts to see more beautiful images and to see their gorgeous cards :)

We have also welcomed two new DT members Jane and Crystal, so be sure to pop over and say hi. 

I adjusted the oval in the sketch into a circle as it fitted the image better. The image is coloured using Promarkers. As the DP has a glitter effect over the orange flowers, I added glitter to the flowers that I had coloured orange, around the well.

I embossed the pink mat that the image is sitting on, with a floral look embossing folder and highlighted some of the embossing and edges with distress ink.

I used some ribbon that tied in with one of the DP's and that kept with the earthy brown tones.

The flowers were all from my stash and I tried to pick a variety and in the colours that matched those in the well.
