I'm so sweet

Well not me but this image I have used in my card again hehe.
 Hello I hope you are all well and enjoying this gorgeous weather, I do hope it's here to stay but those nasty weather folk say different (Gggggrrrrrrrrrr)
Any ways before I show you my card for today (yes I do have one getting good aren't I ) when I was making it I couldn't decide which of 2 images to use so I decided to colour both in the decide once the card was put together and they were coloured yeah?? ok so I spent a good couple of hours colouring and the one image I though wow I'm really pleased with this so maybe I will use it

 I got the flowers just right the shading on the belt and hat everything I was really pleased with it (I know there those of you out there that are 10 times better at colouring than me) but for me this is stunning (If I do say so myself hehe) so what did I go and do all I had left to colour were her shoes and
total bodge up used to much blender and it went pear shaped  so I decided to go with the other image  oh well never mind lesson learned :0(
 so anyway here is my card

It's a biggie 8.5 x 8.5"

 very similar to one I made the other day just different coloured papers again from Jak Heath
they have been matted onto green paper then lilac card all of which has been distressed and inked with DI's bundled sage seedless preserves then I stitched with sewing machine

I added a doily which was also inked and ribbon making a double fussy bow and gems from stash

 The flowers are made like last time using coffee fliter papers you can find out how to make them here
they have bben coloured using either DI's in purple shades or aqua marker again purple then layered with stamen

 I used a leaf die to add a bit of foliage to the flowers

 The image is from Chelsea Le this time I coloured her using the green as main colour  and was coloured with pro markers
 I used the following

Soft peach, Blush,Sunkissed pink , Sandstone, Pastel Pink (skin)
Caramel, Cappuccino, light fawn, raw sienna, sandstone, tan (hair)
Moss, Pear Green, Aniseed (dress)
Lilac, spring lilac, Lavender  (bow and hair band)
Iced Pearl, Pink Lavender (underskirt)
Blue grey 1,3,4 (shoes)
Soft Mauve, Lavender, spring Lilac (sock warmers)
Iced grey 1,3 bluebell, purisian (rabbit)

 here you can see more of the detail in the gorgeous papers they are so soft and delicate

 and there you have my card for today I hope you like it and I will leave you with an arty view and a list of challenges I would like to enter  Cute and cuddly Doily fun lots of layers vintage/ shabby chic (shabby chic) ATG  Shabby chic

Beautiful Card Jacki! Love you coloring! I loved your first colored image. You could just die cut the image and take the shoes out, if you feel you didn't like them. I thought it looked FAB.

Beautiful card and your design elements are stunning!
