BRAVE { Art by Miran Challenge 23}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 23}
  
Art by Miran is launching their 23rdt challenge today. All their challenges are always ANYTHING GOES as long as your project has a hand coloured image. So hop over here to have a look at their 23rd challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, for some more inspiration.

I have used this cute girl called LOVELY IRENE, created by the talented Mi Ran.  She looks so pretty and graceful in her gorgeous dress. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase LOVELY IRENE here.

The images have been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers and brads are from my stash.  The folded embellies have been created with circle punches.


I would love to enter this into the following challenges:

    33. Hi Desire, sorry I've been MIA. I had family visiting during the holiday season and everything just took second place. Also, my Feedburner seems to leave you out every time, so that didn't help either. But enough of that. I took a look at all the beautiful cards you have been busy with and all I can say is Wow! It's always such a pleasure to visit your blog and see your beautiful cards with your beautiful embellishments. I love them, one and all!
      Take care and crafty hugs,

    35. Did you intend for the flowers to look like wheels on the carriage? The little bluebird and the baubles in her hair are just adorable. When I first saw this card, I thought of a brave Scottish lass. Again, thank you for sharing your creativity with us. It's minus 9 *F again.
