SERENITY

I chose the title for my post because I felt quite peaceful while colouring this beautiful image and actually making the card up hence the title 'Serenity'.  
My card features one of the newer images from Sheri Baldy called 'Garden Nellie Lil Dollies', I just love her hat I would love to have one like that.
I have coloured her with Graph It Markers and tried to go for a soft look, the gingham card stock is from Anne Marie Designs, the papers are from my stash, I have added lace, ric rac brown ribbon, flowers, pearls and sentiment.  I think the card looks so much better in real life, I have 3 photos of her to show her off in all her glory.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Just a little reminder that the Besties challenge is still running with the theme FLOWERS.
Many thanks for visiting me also for the comments that are left for me they really do help encourage me, please fell free to come back anytime and have a browse of my work.
