Another of my all time favourite images , comes from 'A Day for Daisies' - again!
This one is called "flower maiden 1" 
and is beautifully simplistic, which does not need a lot of colouring, I feel...

When I found this sentiment on my pc.... from files from long ago, 
I knew that the image would be perfect, with it. 
I printed the sentiment straight onto the card and added the image with 3d foam. 
There is very little colouring on the image, but what I have done, 
I used my promarkers for. 
Finally, I added a tiny bit of sparkle on the flower centres.

This is absolutely awesome...I love the image with that heartfelt sentiment. Amazing! We are so blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We started a new Challenge today and will be delighted for you to come back and link up once more. Leaving you with this encouraging Word of God in Romans 15:4 and it says, "For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." Have a great week.

Absolutely stuffing. Minimalist is definitely the way to go with this particular creation. It really emphasises that beautiful image and quote. Love the addition of the teeny pearls. Just breathtaking Vicky!
