You make Rainy Days Sunny!

Good Monday morning to you all. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. My 2 daughters and granddaughter took me to "Scrapfest" on Saturday. It was a wonderful day! I really love those girls of mine {all three of them!}.
Yesterday I wanted to colour up this Saturdated Canary image and use som of the new things I had purchased at Scrapfest. The Dps are by Echo Park {6x6}. I alos used some pretty polka dot washi tape across the center of the card.I was able to purchase a couple of Memory Box dies so I used this pretty floral border one. I coloured several copies of the image with Copic markers, so that I could cut out different parts and raise them to give the image more dimension. {Not too sure this photo shows it that well}. I added glitter to her hair, slip, around her boots and to the center of the flowers. I used a Spellbinder die to cut out the main image; masked her and used distress ink to shade the background; inking the edges a bit darker than the rest. I punched the computer generated sentiment out with a circle punch. Added a few gems to opposite corners. The sketch and theme are for the challenge at Little Claire's.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is so very pretty. Great colouring and such pretty DP used!

I love MB dies...I think I have a serious addiction to them!!! teehee Yours is really pretty on this card.

Sorry I haven't been visiting for a while...I am still struggling to get a routine back like I had B4 surgery. I am so much better but still have a long ways to go, I always need to push myself to do a little more each day and then I
am tired in the evening to do my visiting and commenting like I used to...sorry about that!
