SENDING YOU MY LOVE..............

Hi everyone........

A goofy little story about my card today.
I was away from home and had taken my markers and some images with me so I could work on them if I had a chance to do so.  Well, I did find a bit of time to color. I was coloring this very cute little image for my card today. I wasn't even thinking about the papers that I was going to put with it! You see I normally pick my papers. Then I color my images to match. Well, not this time!!
The cute little clothes on this image just screamed all of those fun and funky NO MATCH COLORS or it's going to clash colors!!  
I just knew that when I arrived home and tried to find papers for this image it wouldn't happen!!  Then just what was I going to do with this image? But it was an easy day for me when I started to look through my papers. I found my Basic Grey Sugar Rush Pad and open it and the first paper I turned to did have all of those same funky fun colors that I had used on the image!!! So I guess that I am not the only one that puts green, orange, pink, purple and black together!! LOL..  Now I was thinking to self.. Just how am I going to use this and not have it over welm my cute little image.
I swear if its not one thing its another. If I don't do my crafty things in the normal order. It just normally will not work out!! But this one did. I think!

This is what I came with,....
What do you think?

I surprised myself......And I really do like the out come on this one.

The image can be found at Krista's little  Etsy store HERE.  This one that I have used today just happens to be a freebie image 'Canary Love' from a few weeks back. 

Papers: BoBunny, Basic Grey Sugar Rush, Making Memories and Bazzill cardstocks.

Embellishments: Pearls ( Queen & Company), Metal heart charm,  ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons, paper flower, string rose trim (I colored them with my copic makers).
Other items for technique: Copic Markers to color image, Distressed inks (Tim Holtz) Stickles (Ranger) The flower was made by using my Marvy flower punch and punch bunch flower punch. I used my circle punch to punch out the sentiment. It has all been put together with popp foam. Sewing machine for sewing the layers of my card.

I added Stickles to the handmade flower.

Copic markers, Distressed inks, paper flowers, stickles can all be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More

See, you didn't realize how talented you really are...LOL It's a fantastic card and the colors work perfectly together. Love everything about it! Oh how I wish I could color just 1/2 as beautifully as you do. Such a pleasure and inspiration to visit. I need to start leaving a little more love when I visit instead of popping in and out. "Hugs"

Hi Janny!
Your card is so adorable. I love this image. I looked for it but couldn't find it on the Etsy store. Just when I thought I had found a stamp that is not a Magnolia stamp that I like...bwahhhhh.
I love the papers and your coloring is gorgeous.
Have a great day.
Hugs Maz
