Dreaming of You

The inspiration for this card came from the sketch at The Sweet Stop - why not pop over and have a go yourself?

This image is called Daisy and she's from Elisabeth Bell Designs and has been lovingly coloured with my Promarkers.  The centre of the flowers in her hair have been finished with Liquid Pearls - lemon yellow - and then matted onto a doily which has been edged with Tim Holtz Distress Inks - shabby shutters.

The backing papers are from the Papermania "Honey 'n' Hugs" collection which came free with my Papercraft Essentials magazine this month.  They have all been edged with Tim Holtz distress ink - weathered wood - and had faux stitching added.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from the Lily of the Valley "Dreamy Days" set.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
