My prince arrived Here!

As soon as I saw this new image from Shelly's Images I knew that I just
had to color this one and make a joke sentiment on the card.
And I found some lovely papers to go with from Magnolia and used it inside my card.

But first back to that image, it's called My Pad

My Pad

And it's today with a great discount available in the store over HERE

Here is what I made with it:

Greeting Farm Grace Sing

Grace Sing by Greeting Farm at Creabest!


I worked with the image Grace Sing
And I wanted to step outside the box and color her hair in a different tone then what I'm used to choose for hair and clothing.
And when I was done I just wasn't so happy with the result and colored her again with the same colors but now in a softer way.
That means that I have two cards with the same image and papers... 
but totally different cards.

 




Yellow flowers at the top card are by Color me crazy and colored with yellow copic marker.
Little flower with brad is Petaloo Mini Delphiniums cream with some yellow copic stripes.
Brads I used you can find HERE The brads on the first card where white and I colored them orange with my copic marker!

These cards are also into the following challenges:


Hope you love it and leave me a lovely comment.
