a little ray of sunshine...

Evening all! Here's the card I made with this month's freebie from The East Wind, isn't this such a happy summery image? I think she's gorgeous!
I printed her onto watercolour paper and coloured her with distress inks, her dress is paper pieced. I masked off the image and used a MB stencil to make the sunrays. The papers I used are Penny Black Painted Blooms. The hello die cut is Paper Smooches.
Hope you like it.
