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. 

Our theme over at Art by Mi Ran's Showcase Blog for May is to use fibres.

I have used this beautiful girl called CHERRY BLOSSOM, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so at peace in the garden. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase CHERRY BLOSSOM here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, buttons and crocheted button flowers (which my darling SIL made for me) are from my stash. The folded corners have been created with a scallop square punch.  

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