A Helping Hand

This card started life at a coffee morning... Well crafty / coffee morning at my friend Fleurs. I stamped this image and then started colouring it in using her distress inks. I fancied a change to my promarkers. I was quiet pleased with the result so decided to use it for this weeks challenge at ICS.

I have changed the sketch a bit by putting the flowers at the back rather than the front, but I think I have stuck to the sketch. I also decided not to do a flat card  but go a bit 3D so have folded the card to match the different rectangles. (not sure the picture shows this!!)
Thank you Fleur for allowing me to have a play with your craft stash.
 Can't wait to see your creations this week.

Gorgeous card Nicky, great colouring and flowers and I love the different shaped card, I should do more of that sort of thing but always get distracted by something else!
See you soon
