Looking Sharp

 This card was made for this month's ATG and/or Succulent/Color challenge at 613 Ave Create Challenge.  There aren't any sponsors for this challenge.  I used an image from another of my DTs Pattie's Creations the image is called Flowering Cactus in Pot, sadly, I do not see it in her shop, it may have been a freebie on one of her monthly challenges (she does that, gives away a free image for every challenge).    I used some old lace, a new bow from Stamp'in Up and a sentiment drawn and cut out using my Cricut.  I also used an embossing folder on the background paper.  The image itself was colored digitally using Microsoft Paint 3D.

Here is the picture for the challenge:

Here is my card-

Karen, I just love this card! I actually have little sticky notes in my planner that look almost exactly like this. They were the inspiration for the challenge theme!

You captured the colors perfectly! Very nicely done!
