Today I have used the beautiful bunch of sunflowers from the Thinking Of You digital stamp set from Beccy's Place, one of our generous sponsors this week.

My card is an A5 top fold.

I tried a new colouring style for the flowers, links to tutorial below.
The link also includes a new-to-me technique for colouring backgrounds too.
