One of the groups I belong to has a colour challenge each month and April's was pastel colours. I also had to make a card for my friend's wedding anniversary and her favourite flower is the pansy. So this one covers the bases for both the colour challenge and the occasion The flowers are coloured with watercolour pencil crayons and then the colour is blended with a paint brush and rubbing alcohol rather than water. Someone on one of my groups made this suggestion as the alcohol evaporates faster than the water and doesn't make the c/s pill up. Worked like a charm. The yellow cardstock for the base card and the saying are actually the same colour just that the Happy Anniversary is raised so it scanned brighter than the base.
