The Apple Of My Eye...

How chilly has it got?! Im freezing! What happened to that warm weather we had just before the kids broke up from school?! Oh well, at least the garden is being watered... LOL! How are we all?  

I know a couple of posts ago I mentioned my little box of coloured images, well last night I braved looking in it, you know when the image just hits you and you know what to do... well it was one of those moments! This is the beautiful Orchard Love from Saturated canary available here.  I just fell in love with her when i saw her and coloured her strait away.  

I so happy with how this one turned out, other than my awful handwriting! 
The flower was a lovely gift from a SMASH* friend of mine, I just LOVE the flowers... need more! LOL!  The paper is Echo Park and the bunting was cut from the reverse side.  I have a little thing for turning the corners on my paper at the moment, just adds something different! 

Now as it was a while ago I don't know what colours I used, I do however know she was coloured with Copics and I used my Tim Holts Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky to distress the edges.  I wash I had taken more notes as Im so happy with her hair! 

So the one bit I'm not happy with... can you see how awful it looks!? Plus I couldn't find my twin, although I think it would have been too thick for the size of the bunting! 

OK so yes I had to give you an up-close of her hair!
When I suss out the combo I will be sure to add it! and use it again and again and again!

this card is just lovely, I can't believe how beautifully you have coloured in the main image. It looks fantastic. I also love the bunting and how you have added your own handwriting. The turned over corner does add a nice point of difference.
