This is so wicked exciting for me! A Day for Daisies is having Challenge #91 - Anything Goes. How awesome is that? I love anything goes challenges but really... who doesn't!?!
I got this freebie from their store and been itching to make something with it. I think they switch out their freebies each month because when I first discovered the blog, I went and had a look and I don't remember seeing this image... but really... that doesn't mean anything! Short-term memory loss... I suffer from it... I hope I can remember what I was writing about by the time I get to the end of the post! ;) lol Isn't that great?!? The freebies... not the short-term memory loss. ;) lol
Here is my card:
Here's a view from the front:
Here's a closer look at the shimmer on the flowers:
Sorry about the blur but I've written about how that may be from aging affecting my hand's steadiness or was it the pixels changing when I crop the picture? Yeah, I think it's the pixels changing. ;)
All supplies are from my long-hoarded stash. I know the background paper is from Storytellers Club but for the life of me, I don't remember where the flowers or rhinestones are from. I colored the image with Copic markers. I dabbed Stickles in Star Dust on her dress and flowers and used a silver gel pen on the straps of the dress. I thought she came out fabulous! I've seen this image colored by others and she's always been in pastels and I started to do the same but something inside of me screamed "BOLD" so I did. I kinda wanted to use red but then didn't know how to get the birds to fit into the scheme of things so I decided to go with blue. I think it came out super duper nice! ;) My thoughts all the time. That's why I'm here in blog land. So I can show my nice cards. ;) lol
With that said, thanks for stopping by! :)
