Just Because

I've had this sweet LOTV image 'Daydream' stamped and waiting to be coloured since the last LOTV stamp launch! I finally coloured her using my Copics, sorry I didn't write the colours down. I added some softly distressed clouds behind her by using a cloud die and sponging round it with my distress inks.

 

I made a step card from some 300gsm card, added some card and papers from my stash. I die cut a Magnolia flourish and a Memory Box fancy corner flourish. I added a Prima crystal pebble, some pearls and a couple of flowers with pearl stems behind a simple sentiment, I can use this card for any occasion!




Well, it's a little bit brighter here today! Although as I type this, the sun has gone behind a large dark cloud!! Thank you for all your lovely comments, I appreciate them all and welcome to my new followers:)) Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs,
Vicki xx
