Passing the Torch

Hello again.  I've really been getting a lot done lately.  Wish I could be this productive all the time!  This is a digi from A Day for Daisies that was another freebie for the CDAC Challenge #12.  Honestly, this is so much fun!  I love seeing what everyone does with the digis that are provided.  There is so much variety and so much talent out there!  It's overwhelming.  So here's my take on the challenge:


I am very pleased with the coloring.  I had in mind that crisp fabric that is somewhat irridescent but wanted to capture it in colored pencil without stickles or other embellishments to give it that sheen.  I really like the way it moves from one color to the next and back.  Anyway, I had a LOT of fun with this card.  I just happened to have the flourish and green roses in my stash, how perfect! 

I am also entering this card in the challenge at Always Crafting.

Have a great day!
