Camellia Blossom

Another card for the Butterfly Challenge #100th Celebrations.
This time I have used Hot Pink with Hexagons and the Butterflies.
I made a base card hexagon shape in white cardstock and then a smaller one in hot pink cardstock.
The image is by Woodware ' Camellia'  which I have coloured in with my Graph'it marker pens and then outlined using a gold gel pen. I have a Camellia bush in my front garden which has dark pink flowers. They are mostly all finished now but I wanted to capture the colours of the blooms as they  start to fade and then fall off.


 Here is the card with one of the fallen blooms . The butterflies are SU die cuts . The set is no longer available to buy which is a shame as it was a popular one .The sentiment is a gold sticker from my stash.

I'm rather pleased with how this card turned out.
The challenge is running for  further 2 weeks and closes on 5th June. Hope you can find time to join in spinning the wheel.

Beautiful card with great coloring of the camellia. Me too I have a big camellia bush with the same dark pink flowers. Last night there has been bad weather and now there are only some flowers on the ground.

This card is beautiful, I love how you’ve used the hexagon
I have a camellia but I don’t think it likes my garden, it’s never flowered
