Molly's Flowers

Evening all, Adrian was discharged today from hospital and is tucked up in the bed in the spare room. It has a higher headboard and I think the bed itself might be slightly higher than ours. He had a reasonable afternoon, several naps and stayed up for about 3 1/2 hours after tea tonight. Still taking pain medication, I hadn't realised until today that his ribs are broken at the back not the front so it is probably more painful as he is putting pressure on them when he sits or lies down.
I left him to his television watching and came and made a card, so here it is.
Oh, by the way, Laurie rang from Cambodia tonight, he arrived safely, has his scooter and made sure it is allright mechanically, I think he had to get some new tyres and a couple of things fixed first. He had a ride around the city and had a meal out at a local street restaurant. Seems to be having a good time so far.
Now onto the card, LOL.
I've used orange cardstock from stash for the basecard, a layer of DP from SU and another SU paper cut into a 3cm wide strip. I cut a deckled oval (nestie) with blue card from stash and adhered it to a piece of white card and cut a small edge around the diecut. The next size die is too big for what I wanted. I used a punch to make the corners out of blue card and the orange DP and then added some bling as well. The image which is from Annabelle Stamps called Lil Molly's Stamps was inked with SU Basic Brown onto white card and coloured with Copic Markers and then trimmed and adhered to the oval. The whole thing was then popped up with foam dots.
I am entering this into the following:

    Thank so much for your comment oin my asked how to get the pencil colouring so smooth....Faber castell are very soft pencils, I put it on thick, then blend with an odourless blending oil, just a tad, and I keep pushing the colour till it all melts, so to speak..
