Such a gorgeous image - I made 2!!

Well, I got this adorable image from Digi Darla for the Glitter N Sparkle challenge (66) this week...
(anything goes!) and I was so inspired by it, I made 2 cards!
 So, for the first card, I immediately hunted through my papers to find something
with red flowers on - I wanted red flowers! Could I find anything? NO!
So, I took a dovecrafts backing paper...from the "tea party" set (I think)
and I used my red promarker to colour all the little pink flowers, red! Hurrah! :)
I was really pleased with how it came out.
I coloured the image with my watercolour pencils
and added a sentiment form Pink Petticoat - "simply delightful" range.
I added a little glitter to all the daisies on the backing paper
and some MS punched butterflies...think they are becoming my signature! :)

This paper comes from "My Minds eye" - a freebie set of papers, that I
actually won, online!

There are little specks of glitter here n there, but the
camera didn't pick them up too well.

How very pretty... and isn't it amazing how a different colour can make the card look so different.

Thanks so much Vic for taking the time to share your project in the #53 “Anything Goes” Challenge. So many little details I am seeing in this 2nd card with the punched flowers & butterflies... and I really like the embossed edge on the image panel along with matting and colored edges. Seems like the more I looked the more I saw! Nicely done!
