HAPPY BIRTHDAY {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Hope all of you are keeping well and having loads of creative fun. 

I am here today with another creation for Art by Mi Ran's SHOWCASE BLOG, where the theme for August is WARM COLOURS.

I have used this beautiful girl, ARUM, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so serene amongst the lillies.
Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her
awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase ARUM here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, brads and buttons are from my stash. The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.

I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:
