Hi all, today is a little brighter and drier than it was yesterday here in Gloucester, we had such strong winds and lots of rain, not nice.
Today I have a card to share with you and enter into a couple of challenges, 
My card features a digital image from Miss Daisy Stamps called Maggie
I have coloured her with both Graph it Markers and Copics, the papers are LOTV both image and papers have been mounted onto black card I also added a strip of black across the card then used my scalloped border punch then added some of the green base paper and a couple of gem daisies, I also added a double yellow organza ribbon bow topped with a gold pearl gem, I then added a sentiment and some pearl drops 
I would like to know what you think about the colouring of the image, I decided not to colour the whole dress and hat but add just a touch of colour I am quite pleased with the effect,

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Many, many thanks for taking the time out to come visit my blog and for leaving me such lovely comments your encouragement and support mean more to me than you will ever know.
Have a great day

It's a beautiful card Lorraine. The part colouring of the dress and hat on your sweet image is very effective, a lovely technique! Fabulous LO and gorgeous papers, the black edging makes everything pop!

So cute and pretty Lorraine. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

ALL your creations make my jaw drop. funny how you went the "fancy" route and i went the "CAS" route. i have loved watching you grow in your talents over the years!

my medicare pays for my eye exam and i go about every 2 yrs.
i was able to get glasses ONLY because the eye clinic knows alot of people can't afford it as the cost ISN'T the frames, it's the prescription and the lenses. so they have a few package deals and i found one i really liked for under $200. they also told me i have the start of a cataract in my left eye. now we wait LOL.

have a great weekend!

big hugs, my friend!
