Flowers Bloom -- for MHKDesigns

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends!  Happy February!  Days are getting longer, birds are singing a bit more, so there really are some signs of spring in the meds of winter!

Today, there's a new challenge starting on the MHKDesigns blog.  Challenges now start on the first of the month and run all month. They are Anything Goes, if you use an MHKDesigns image, and there's an inspiration board to follow if you want.

As many of you know, I have Lymphoma and am undergoing chemo treatments.  I found great inspiration in the card I made for this month's challenge.  This quote brought me great comfort....

This card uses MHKDesigns, Open Bloom for both the flower and the sentiment.  The flower is colored with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils on Kraft.  The gorgeous designer paper, also from MHKDesigns,  is from the Get Well Flowers digital paper pack.

I cut the card shape out on my Silhouette Cameo, using a cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  The stitched oval cutting dies are from Die-namics.  The 3D flower is from my stash.
