Petal Lu Challenge #32

Well hello!
Thank you once again for dropping by!
Today is the start of the new Challenge over at Petal Lu Challenge Blog.  I'm a little late posting up since I decided to tidy up my craft space! took a lot longer than I thought it would, found lots of things I had thought I had lost (still missing 1 particular die though) and put a lot of things into storage because I just can't face getting rid of them.  At least for now everything in my craft room are things I use all of the time - like I said 'for now'.
So moving onto the current challenge, as usual it is anything goes.  There is a 30% discount code for the online store up for grabs, so it doesn't matter what you have done, enter the challenge to be in with a chance to win.
This time I decided to work with a Simply B Stamps, Rio Pandora, you can get her from SimplyB website.
My daughter's current topic in school is Greek's, so I thought this would be a lovely little design for her bedroom.

Green is fast becoming my go to colour combo, just love it!
I decided to make a pen pot, I've been saving tin cans all week, so actually have a few images coloured up to make more, but this is the finished one.

I cut some fences out to go all the way around and then arranged the flowers over some wire to float around her.

The green flowers used, will be entering the store in just a few days under our new colour combo section.

 Stunning vibrant colours!

Dress: G28, YG67, YG45, YG23, YG11, C7

Pinks: RV10, RV02, RV23, RV04, RV06, V06
