I have struggled with the photo's of this card as the camera seems to wash out the colour, so I have added two samples of the same photo as the true likeness is somewhere in the middle and either reflect tones correctly on there own.

This is the 3rd of the new stamp set from Sugar Nellies called JOY and I've coloured again with copics and polychromos pencils.

I used some papers from my paper stash from Quitoxic Paperie and Crafters Companion.  To create the frame I used a spellbinders die.  The flourishes were cut with Marianne dies and embellished with flowers from Wildorchid. 

To complete this card I used ribbon, sequins, gems and corner peel-offs.

Hope you like how I've coloured this little girls - I wanted it to have the look of a pastel drawing.

Thanks for looking, please let me a comment.

Best wishes,  Sharon

PS  Time's ticking away again so will post coloured image with prisma's tomorrow.
