THE BEST OF YOUR LIFE {New Image from Monika Reeck}

{Choose to make the rest of your Life
the best of your Life}

A very dear bloggy friend of mine, which I am sure quite a few of my followers also know in blog land, Monika Reeck has a friend who started to draw some lovely images and Monika is selling them on her Java Card Line Art Etsy Shop here.  I have used this very elegant lady called
LADY WITH BATIK SKIRT and you can purchase her here.

I have coloured her with Copics.  The folded flowers have been created with scallop square punches and the crochet flowers have been made for me by a very dear friend.  The brads and design papers are from my stash and the flourishes have been stamped by Chiswick acrylic stamps.

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge
613 Avenue Create - ATG + Optional Twist SUBWAY ART
Word Art Wednesday: Anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Inspiration Destination - ATG
Just Keep on Creating - ATG

Thank you for your wonderful visits here and all the love you leave behind.
