SMILES {Art by Mi Ran Facebook 'April ATG Challenge}

Art by Miran's FACEBOOK April Challenge}
Art by Miran is hosting another Facebook Challenge this April and it is ANYTHING GOES as long as you use an ART BY MI RAN image to enter the challenge with. So hop over here to have a look at the current challenge.  Pull out your fabulous Art by MiRan images and stamps and enter our challenge.

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

I have used this cute lovable little girl called SWEET LINDA, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so pretty with her lovely dress, pretty flower in the hair and all. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase SWEET LINDA here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, bling, hearts and crocheted button flowers (which my darling SIL made for me) are from my stash.
