Jacaranda Fan

Good morning, its actually bright and sunny here this morning, amazing! Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Totally PaperCrafts and their theme is Don't be Square use a shaped card. It took me a while, (I finished 20min before I had to post) but I finally finished a fan card. It took me forever to figure it out but I really like it. I used Doodle Pantry's new Jacaranda flower. I had to do some research because we don't have them here, that I've seen anyway. This is how it looks standing on its own.
I stamped and embossed the white with a swirls background and then cut out the fan pieces. The flowers are  coloured with prisma alcohol markers and then I highlighted them with prisma pencils/babyoil. I added stickles to give it a bit more bling.
Sitting up like this it looks more like a fan. Hop on over to Totally PaperCrafts and give their challenge a try. If you use a Doodle Pantry image you can enter our challenge as well!
