Just a card...

Good evening, here's a card I made using a beautiful digital image from Sweet Pea Stamps. The minute I saw this I knew I would have to give in and buy it as it could have been modelled on my gorgeous eldest granddaughter! When Olivia saw the finished card on my desk she said 'Nanny that looks just like me!' I coloured her (the image, not Olivia!)with copics and added a tiny bit of Frantage. I kept the design quite simple, adding the die cut bows (still love this die), leaves and a few flowers. I'm pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks for taking the time to visit!
