Old Fashioned Rules

Sometimes you just have to break the rules - like "don't combine checks and spots".   I don't think we follow those fashion rules as much anymore and I'm sure they don't apply to cards and especially if checks and dots are both on the Designer Paper!  Isn't this beautiful DP.  It is digital by Doodle Pantry .  So is the image.
The papers are from the  SeaBuckhorn digital set and the image is from the Buttercup set.  I colored the flowers with pencils and then added Key Lime Liquid Pearls in the centers.
You can find both sets at Doodle Pantry and click over to the challenge  to play along and receive the Kite Ants set just for playing.  
This is the sketch I used at Sweet Sketch Wednesday
