Yellow flower card

It's week 65 over at 'Less is More' and this time
it's a sketch.
"For this week's sketch we'd like you to keep to the
 proportions of this drawing so that there is considerable
 white space remaining in the finished card."
You may choose either of these



I used an 'anjisantics' digi  I have had a while, I altered the shape
to make it more square here. I coloured it with Promarkers & pencil
 crayon, then 3 d'd some of the petals. Another yellow layer was made
 behind the main image too.After adding some glamour dust
& a spot of flower soft in the middle I added a computerized sentiment.
An easy one this week I think, thankyou so much Chrissie & Mandi :)

Had a lovely day babysitting Alex yesterday he was so well behaved
while his parents attended a wedding.
Also my niece gave birth  to a son today at 1.30 am, no name as yet, but
mum and baby both doing well I can report.
My other brother continues to be ill, he has a blood clot on his lungs and they have
also found a growth after doing a 2nd colonoscopy, we await results of a biopsy.
So happy and sad news today, isn't that always the case though !
