Helen Comments below
"I have made this bright card using yellows & oranges (to reflect the lovely weather which is hopefully here to stay!) & little Claire's my flower pot design. I though this lovely design looked great coloured with ProMarkers. The simplicity of the design also meant that it could be used effectively with patterned papers and embellishments".
