Out of my comfort zone

For this card I had some sunflower type buttons that I wanted to use and it sort of went from there.  I also wanted to use colours and papers that I have not used before to try experimenting.  I am obviously very new to card making so am finding out what does and does not work.  I wanted to follow a sketch as I am enjoying trying these out and found one that I thought would work.  I made the mistake though of colouring the image before I had sorted out papers so am not overly sure on the colours I have used on the image.  Definately need some more promarkers!  I realised once I'd coloured the image that I had printed it out too large but was not prepared to start again by this stage.


I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-

  7. This is gorgeous! Great image and lovely papers. I've come unstuck before by colouring images before deciding on papers but I think you've got it spot on here, it all goes together so well. I agree with other comments that the image is fine, not too big. We are all our own harshest critics but there's absolutely nothing wrong with this card and it's a fab layout too.
