New challenge at Designed to Color - sponsored by Sweet & Sassy Stamps!

morning, chickens!  hope all's well in your respective corners of the world, and i hope your MONDAY was better than mine.  crikey, what a bunch of chaos!  glad i was able to finish it out with all the hair still on my head, because i sure felt like yanking it out!

anywho, it's time for a new challenge at Designed to Color, and this one's sponsored by the fabulous Sweet N Sassy Stamps!  our theme is DIES!  use any dies and be sure you have a colored image to play along - easy peasy!

i got to choose a digi to work with, and i wanted something that was not my usual character dealio, so i opted for a simple flower on which i could add some fun detail and folds.  the result?

colored up with my trusty Prismacolor Pencils and laid down with a simple design...  here's the close-up:
