Spring colors

Hello again. 
Spring is around the corner and I can't wait for it.

So today I'm playing along with a few challenges and spring colors. The sketch idea came from the Fusion Challenge and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I flipped a few elements to the right side, just to make it mine. I die cut the beautiful Altenew rose and colored it with pencils. The delicate aqua mesh background is made with dry wall mesh used as a stencil.

Happy International Women's Day tomorrow!
