Standing in the Clouds

I have made this card for the current A Day for Daisies Challenge, which this fortnight is Anything Goes.

I have used an adorable image called Standing in the Clouds and teamed her up with some Pink Petticoat Papers.

I coloured her with ProMarkers and added some glitter to the fur on her outfit.  The white poinsettia is a Spellbinders die and the sentiment tags are LOTV.  I have added some ribbon and a gem from my stash.

I very nearly didn't blog this card, I just could not get a decent photograph - the colours are not true, in real life her clothes are the same colour as the papers and the glitter looks so messy, I think it must be the reflection.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Day for Daisies Challenge 86 - Anything Goes
Love to Create Challenge 97 - Blue with Bling (Winter)
Robyn's Fetish Challenge 193 - Use a Digi
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 17 - Anything Goes

A stunning card Pauline! Glad you got a picture you were happy with it would be a shame not to share it! I had the same problem this morning I had to do 3 lots of photos and editing before I could get one that didn't turn the white card pink!! Roll on summer! Susan x

I'm glad you showed us this card, Pauline! I think the size of this beautiful image works so well with this clean design, and your color choice is perfect for a wintery look.
