All dressed up pink and blue girl with Spectrum Blendables

I thought that, here in the UK, we needed a little reminder that Spring is coming so I am back today with this little cutie from All Dressed Up. I thought the butterflies and flowers would make me feel more Spring like, rather than the dark, cold and damp weather that I am seeing out of my window right now!

My lovely little girl was coloured using my Spectrum Colourblend pencils and blending solution and the lovely backing papers are a NitWits digital collection.

It's not often that I add sentiments, but I couldn't resist using the Lots of Love banner, which is from Tattered Lace - it seems to add just the finishing touch that I needed.

Looking at the close up, I am wondering if I should have added a little touch of glitter to those butterflies. Oh well, too late now....this card has already gone to a new home!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you all a restful and crafty weekend.

  7. Hello… Thanks for sharing your card with us at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog… your card is lovely, but unfortunately the challenge theme is 'All that Glitters' and as I cant see any glitter on your card, it will not be entered in our draw this time...
