WITH AGE COMES WISDOM {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 with another card for the Art by Mi Ran's SHOWCASE BLOG and have used this beautiful GIRL SITTING ON CLOUD, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so cheerful and dreamy amongst the clouds.
Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her
awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase GIRL SITTING ON CLOUD  here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and the clouds with dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, bling and buttons 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:

  22. Oh such a dreamy card Desire! I love how soft your coloring is on this Mi Ran girl "sitting on the cloud." Your fancy folds truly are fantastic and beautiful combination of the colors. Now the sentiment, I got to ask, does with age really come wisdom? It seems in my case it quite the opposite since I'm constantly being corrected by my 5 years old! Ha-ha. Thanks so much for taking part in our Must Have Pink theme over at Outlawz Monday Greetings. Hope you'll join us for next week fun theme. Have a lovely weekend Desire.
