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 Anything but Square.
HAYLEE, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so pretty on the swing. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase HAYLEE here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, buttons and brads are from my stash. The folded flowers have been created with circle and flower punches. 

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

  43. Another very colorful and awesomely embellished creation, Desire! I always love your paper folding. Amazing! What a blessing it is for us that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week and hope you join us again this week. I want to share the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 telling us, ” However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” Have a blessed weekend…
