colorQ Challenge #148

This is my first time playing colorQ challenge! I was blog surfing and came across Tracey's blog (In My Creative Opinion) and was so intrigued by this....
 
Aren't these colors gorgeous!? The pattern on this little bag reminds me of the new Lattice stamp that I have. So, of course, I can't help making a card (surprise!!)!
hello friend
Firstly, I embossed the Lattice Background in white and then colored with copics and Marvey Markers. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. The flower was stamped in Hero Arts Neon Orange. Love the NEONS! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying the Olympics!
