Creative Confetti - Get in Shape

This is the last challenge for this month at Creative Confetti.  There was a different suggestion each week and they all when into one monthly challenge.  I entered every week!  Just because I love to color the images that Marcie designs and the team certainly challenged me.  How about you?  
There is still time to enter.  For this week we are to put a shape into our card.  Julie describes how to do that with the digital images.  You can see that Here.
I did do a digital image and the sentiment as well, but I think my method was a bit different from Julie's, but it worked.  Not telling you how I did mine.  But it did involve a digital eraser.  Lol
Ok, enough talk here is my card. 
 I printed the digital Geraniums and used the sentiment from Flower Bomb.  I hand drew in the border on the rectangle shape.  Since I got this to work quite quickly, I didn't want to take a chance on losing it.
Using my favorite Copic markers for pinks and greens, I began to color it.  I took me an hour of fun and relaxing to complete it.  Then I added it to a base of GKD Fresh Asparagus cardstock and a border that a friend sent to me.  It was the outtake from a PTI die.  I use everything.  A bit of gold GKD cord on the side.  I used the techniques that I learned from taking the Kit and Clowder classes.  
Thanks for stopping by, I love your comments and appreciate them.

  5. Barbara, I'm so thrilled that you joined us for each week's challenge — you rocked each and every one — and this one was particularly challenging with the technical aspect!
