Adorable Joy + Challenges



I am so in Love with these new Simply Adorable digital images from Sugar Nellie.  I've used sweet Joy for my card and tried to make it look kind of Vintage by using Cosmo Cricket card and distressing it a little. What do you think!!  I like it, the picture was taken indoors on a grey and miserable day, it's actually a lot brighter and more vivid than the picture.  Oh roll on Spring when photo's can be taken in natural light to show them in all their glory.

I've coloured her with pro markers, for her sweet face I used sunkissed pink, dusky pink, blush and ivory. her outfit is one colour of Soft Green and her hair is Ivory, Vanilla, Satin and Sandstone.

The little flowers are all from various Martha Steward punches, all cosmo cricket card stock and the pearls are all from prima.  The sweet twisted rose ribbon is from fantasticribbons.co.uk and the sentiment is from raindropecho (whimsy stamps) the leaves and tree branches are all Marianne D's die cuts. the butterfly's are from my stock.
