  1. Super cute. Love the image and how you colored it in. The sky behind her is awesome-was that done with ink pads? Love that you decorated the inside of the card. I just saw your card on MIM and wanted to stop by and take a look. Great job.

    1. Hi Cindy,
      Thanks for the sweet comments. Yes, done with two ink pads and daubers. I like to let it drag a little before putting to paper and I change pressure to get the dark and light sections. Always hard to put technique into words.

  2. Super cute! Love that you kept with the "bee" colors throughout. Great papers and the layered bloom is lovely. :-)

  3. Such a sweet image, lovely colouring and fab layout. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card with us at Make It Monday this week.

  4. Super cute is right!!!! Love the image and the shimmer and your fab coloring skills!!! You've inspired me to break out those markers! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday !

  5. Love your adorable card. That is such a sweet image and the colors are perfect. Great details with the shimmer. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  6. A wonderful creation. Loving the colours, design and attention to detail. Saw this on MIM and had to come over for a closer look. Hugs Desíre {Doing Life}

  7. I spotted this charming card at the Outlawz. Thought I would come by and say Hi!
