JOY {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Post}

{JOY TO THE WORLD}

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 called ANGELIC BELLE, created by the talented Mi Ran. She is just pure festive delight with the 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 ANGELIC BELLE  here.

The image has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers, flat pearls and stars are from my stash. The flowers have been created with flower and circle punches.  Also used some stickles to add some sparkle to the creation.
