Hi All

Brenda is hosting this week with a photo challenge......


June 25th

As always you can create whatever you like, from cards to cakes, mixed media to gift boxes, all we ask is that your work reflects the colours in above photo.

My take on the theme is as follows, i used a tonic die set and used one of Anna's flower sets by hobby art to make a flower embellishment.
