Morning all well have been on a bit of a tidying mission, need to get organised, i'm driving my self up the wall at the moment with all the mess! But feeling very positive at the moment.... 

Well I'm here to share a card with you.  It is one that I finished a week ago and I was very happy with the way it turned out.  I have used one of Mo Mannings images, Lacie with Ice Cream, I find her so adorable!!! 

I used some blue patterned paper for the back mounted onto red bazzill and onto a Kraft card base.  
I cut her down with my nesties and put her onto a doily. I just felt it broke her up a bit! I sponged in the blue sky again so it broke it all up a bit! 

Here is a close up of her, I used my pro-markers to colour her,  I used sunkissed pink putty and blush for her skin tome and cardinal red and poppy for her dress.  Her hair was coloured using caramel and coco! 

Below is a picture of the little flowers and pin I put on the corner.  

I also added some crystals on stems I have had sat in my stash for ages! The leaves are ones I have pulled off from other flowers!
