3 Challenges 1 Card

I have had this image printed off for some time just waiting for the right sketch which Friday Sketchers Challenge 87 provided this week. I learned this technique from Roberta (Prairie Fairy) it is using pencil crayons, baby oil and blending stumps. I love the soft look it gives this image. Once I colored it, I saw that it went well with Color Dare 53 and lucky me the image, the greeting and silk flower qualify me for Cute Card Thursday's challenge 97 "Bloomin' Gorgeous". A close up of the soft effect that this coloring technique gives.

Ink: Bordering Blue, Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black
Paper: Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White and SU DSP
