My Time to Craft Challenge - No Patterned Papers!

I'm having nightmares with my computer at the moment, it keeps switching me off so apologies for not coming to visit you all yet this week, I refuse to let the computer win though and if I manage to post this card I will be a happy bunny lol!!
The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is no patterned paper!! This is always a hard one but it does make you think outside the box a little!! Here is what I made...

The image is from Joanna Sheen's Cardmaker's Year CD Rom, this will be the card I give to my bestest work colleague when she retires in September, I'm going to miss her so much :0(
Anyway, I printed the image onto cardstock on a 'normal' print quality, and then I touched up the image with a mixture of pencils, Pro Markers and red Crystal Lacquer. I created the background with a little daisy stamp which is from a Woodware sentiment stamp set (the sentiment is from the same set too). Then I simply just added some striking yellow flowers and a bit of black to make it pop a bit!
Thanks for looking again, hope you all have a fab week!

Love Becky xx

P.S Any Big Brother fans out there? I can't believe my 2 favourite guys Halfwit and Sree are up for nomination, Friday is going to be a gutting night for me, I think I'd be more gutted to see Sree go though, he is great to watch and always has a bit of drama to add to the mix!

Hi Becky, what a lovely bright and cheery card the bright yellow flowers add the 'wow' factor!!
As for your Cute Daisy May card in the previous post, it's just fab!

Can't believe you are a Sree fan I can't stand him and am hoping Half Wit survives another week! Sorry! Where's our eye candy?, Charlie's quite sweet but gay, bring back Stuart from last year I say!!!!!!!
