Aurora Daisy

Good afternoon, hope all are well and enjoying what's left of the weekend! Myself, I have had a lovely couple of days, yesterday met my son and baby granddaughter for lunch then spent a couple of hours with them in a soft play activity centre. It's so wonderful to see little Emily developing her skills and confidence, she's not quite walking yet but it doesn't stop her climbing everywhere and she's so happy interacting with other children! Today I went to a craft show with my sister, I personally think I showed considerable restraint with my spending...others may disagree :)
My card today is made using a gorgeous digi from The East Wind,  she's called Aurora Daisy and is available here. I really enjoyed colouring this beauty with my copics. I added a tiny braid to her hair made from embroidery floss... I think it suits her! Her earrings are trimmed with tiny pieces of a feather. The brown half doily is felt. I attached a  small bunch of feathers (real and die cut) with a little daisy brad and some punched daisies. The sentiment stamp is LOTV.

Thanks for visiting!
Have a good evening.

Wow! I love the colors you used and the embellishments are so perfect and elegant. Your image is colored so well and I love how you added a braid on top of the image, it just makes the image have an extra pop. This card really inspires me to think outside the box and dare to explore with more embellishments. Thanks for joining us at the stamping boutique challenge blog. -Annalisa (DT)
