For my design card this week, I used a image from our sponsor Sunflowers and Dragonflies. I colored the door image with copics and layered pieces of the door up to 3 times for dimension.

I have taken coordinating ribbons & layered them down the sides of my image in place of scallops.

I am linking my card to these challenges:
Raise the Bar - Colour me Happy
Penny's Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Cats Weekly Challenge - Stitching
Hand Full of Stamps - Use up that stock (at least 2)
