Postcard Swap and a New Pattern: Blossom

Killing two birds with one stone this week, I thought I'd try the Diva's UMT Challenge to use CZT Katy Abbott's tangle Kuke, in our Zia group's postcard swap! What I ended up doing, however, was creating my own new pattern, Blossom...These things will happen, right? I wasn't feeling the 'orb' shape of Katy's Kuke and wanted to do something similar on a grid, and viola! A pattern is born:

 
And here are the postcards I created for the Zia group swap, featuring Blossom in the top card:
 
Both cards drawn in Micron Sepia, top was shaded with Derwent Inktense and bottom with sepia charcoal.
 
For a day that started off rather rough for me, it's turned out to be not so bad after all...the magic of Zentangle! Happy Almost the Weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
