BUSY SIDEWALKS {Art by Mi Ran Challenge 44}

{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 CHALLENGE BLOG where Challenge 44 is underway and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES. I have used this beautiful GIRL called BUNTING BECKY, created by the talented Mi Ran. She is just pure festive delight with her little bunting.
Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her
awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase BUNTING BECKY  here.

The image has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .  The design papers and jewel stones are from my stash. Also used some Stickles on Becky and the flowers to add some sparkle.  The flowers have been created with flower and circle punches.
