Hello Sunshine - We've Got Flower Power!!!

It's time for another fun filled challenge over on the Elphine House Australia Challenge blog.  Are you ready to get your "Flowers" out?  This weeks challenge is called "Flower Power"  So we sure hope you will dig up your favorite Elisabeth Bell designs, and load up on the flowers, and join us this week. 
I have used one of the newest stamps from Elphine House Australia, these cuties will be in the EHA Shop very soon, so watch for them.  You may recognize this sweetheart, she is part of what was once known as the "Hello Sunshine Set"  =)  Before I show you my card, I have to say, I have had The Worst luck on earth this week for some reason.  I think I could give you a list of what went wrong with this card, and the list would be longer than the list of what went right. But cutting it so close, I didn't have time to start again... Oh my....

Soooooo here we go.....

 I colored this sweetie with Prisma Color Pencils, a touch of gel pen, and tiny dabs of white paint... Oh don't even ask... LOL  Well first of all, my white gel pen was giving me fits, so my quick thinking I thought I could touch it up with white paint... HA.... Suggestion, This Does Not Work Well...  Also, when using a gel pen, it might have helped if I had let the ink dry, or at least not stuck my hand right in it and then transferred ink to placed that ink should NOT have been transferred to.  I had to draw an extra flower in the wagon to hide that mess, but Still it's not completely hidden... Yeah, go ahead, I know what you're doing... You are going to look and see where I messed up aren't you?  ha ha...   Well.... Lets top it off with the entire image...  She is Crooked.... She must be pushing that cart of flowers up hill... that's all I can think of....  What is wrong with me? - Oyyyyy....  LOL  On a fun note though, I had a blast making my flowers, and painting them with Twinkling H20's.  And my sentiments were both made by me, on my computer... so I Do like those for sure, and hey... the DCWV papers are sweet, and I love the color combo that I used, but as I stated before.... What is wrong with me today, I don't know... I just must be having one of those days...  Lesson learned... Do Not attempt to try and get something finished, on the day that I need to have it done.  *wiping brow*  Prisma Colors Used:
