Anything Goes Phindy Challenge Card #1

It's the first full week of the month, and you know what that means don't you?That's right, it means that over on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, it's anything goes as long as you use a Phindy's Place image. The only problem is WHICH Phindy Image to use. Well I quickly picked out 3 images and the papers for all of them. I've actually got two made and even have the sketch for the 3rd one chosen. Now to get the first two blogged and the third one made and blogged.

For my first card I chose this image called Hyacinth and Ivy from the Phindy's Place Store. I've had this image for awhile, but this is the first card I've made with it. I think hyacinths may be one of my all time favorite flowers. They just smell soooooo good. I've colored the image with my Copics. Not much shading because the leaves were really small.

I found this delightful sketch over on Card Patterns. It was last week's sketch, but that didn't bother me. I found this delightful paper on the Raspberry Road Designs digital paper site, from the Moving Day Collection. It was a freebie, but  I have to tell you they have a whole bunch of Dollar sets and a great sale going on right now. Just followed the sketch and finished up with some pearls. 

Now off to blog card number 2.
