Elisabeth Bell's Rosie's Posies

For the past few years I have filled my plate with DT projects.  I cut back on some of my DT responsibilities for 2016 and am enjoying a bit more time at my craft table rather than my computer and that included entering challenges. Here's a card I made for fun; just for the heck of it.  I used this adorable image by Elisabeth Bell named Rosie's Posies.

The diecut behind my image is by Marianne and the sentiment with matching die cut are from Whimsy. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the lower part of the card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, byThita and I Am Roses. The assorted green leaves are from Wild Orchid. The green glitter swirl is by Prima and was clear rhinestones and I colored them with my Copic green marker. The gold pearls are from JoAnn's and the ribbon with the button in the middle is from my stash as well as all the different embellishments going across the page.

I colored my image with Copics and added a touch of Hero Arts glitter with my glue pen to the flowers in her hands, the flowers in the arrangement and on the die cut behind the image. I inked the edge of my oval and then applied clear embossing powder for some shine (that isn't showing well in the photos).

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love you to Follow my blog!
