You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

My card uses the new image Hydrangea...


I decided to use this as Mum and Dad have a lovely Hydrangea in their garden - in a pot by the front door.

Here is Dad appreciating it...



I printed the image and coloured it with a collection of markers, cut it out with a scalloped die and added picked raspberry distress ink around the edges.


I layered this on pink card and added it to a white scalloped card blank, which had been matted with purple card and then layered with a paper that I had printed on the computer with distress ink around the edge.


I also made a matching tag:
