A Bit of Lavender

 A closer look at the image.
 My pretty die cut boarder.
 A pretty nylon butterfly.
I colored this image from SC when my husband was last in the hospital. I have often wondered if stress effects our coloring or artistic abilities. When I biggie size this I could see so many 'flaws' in my coloring...you will notice it is not "biggie sized". LOL! I still love the card and hope it will brighten someone's day. My paper came out of the scrap box. I added some pretty die cut lace and added some WOC two-tone roses. A pretty nylon butterfly and heart shaped rhinestones finished off my card.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: (Nat King Cole)
They asked me how I knew
My true love was true?
I of course replied
"Something here inside,
Cannot be denied" They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
When your heart's on fire
You must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

She's beautiful and I don't really notice the things you speak of...it's all artist feel...haha...she looks like a girl ready for the prom. I've always wished I could wear my hair like that but I wasn't born with those dainty features....haha
