Hi, There!
Today was such a day!  A lovely day - full of sunshine and warm weather!!  Yes!!  Wish I could say I just enjoyed it but.... I was out there cleaning windows and screens.  But a break came later and then it was such a lovely day looking at my clean windows and screens;)

On to the card -
Image is from Lili of the Valley colored with Copic Markers.  I think she is so cute with her fuzzy sweater.  I used Star Dust on her sweater and her petticoat.  Some liquid pearls in the background here and there.

I bought some Shabby Ribbon from Live & Love Crafts (check them out) and it came wrapped in a piece of script cardboard that I used behind the image and applied some Fran-tage Shabby Pink to it.  Added some Frantage Shabby Pink to my little wooden bird cage and to the Joy corner punch.  Papers are from Lost & Found-My Mind's Eye/Blush. I like how the bird shows behind the bird cage! Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Lace is from my stash.  Little Kite sticker is from MS.

Thanks for taking time to visit and I hope you have a week full of "such lovely days".
 Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

  6. Hi Caroleann,
    Gorgeous image and so cute with the little bird behind the birdcage, which looks fantastic with the added frantage. Glad to see you also found some use for the seam binding wrapping. Thanks for taking part in LLC's and CLP's April challenges (and apologies for my late visit). Hugz, Sandy
