Be My Sunshine from Tiddly Inks

Hello to everyone from a really chilly UK.  We are promised temperatures in double figures next week and I can't wait.

I have been busy this week making and scheduling cards for Challenges next week and have taken some time out to make a card just for fun.

This creation features the truly lovely image Annabelle Sunshine from Tiddly Inks.  I think this is a lovely spring-like image.

List of Material used to make this card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my new Copic Pens, which I am really enjoying using and with a touch of pencil detail and gel pen.  Distress inks have been used to make cloud detail.
Design papers is from my stash.  Card stock is folded to make an approx 6" x 6" card base and also for die cut detail.
Die cuts were lots of fun to make.  I have used Spellbinder Dies to make the large rose and Sizzix small rolled rose, with bead detail.  Floral flourish die.  Joy Craft die to mount image and Spellbinder to cut image.  Butterfly dies are Marianne Designs I think.  I have used a new  Marianne Birdhouse Die which comes with its own stamp which I have coloured to match the main image.  
Lace, ribbon, gem detail and other flowers are from my stash.

Image above shows some inside detail of card which is decorated with the same design paper having been cut from a 12" x 12" sheet.  Detail is Joy Craft die cut with circle for recording of a greeting.  

I would like to enter this little sweetie in the following Challenges: - blue/aqua shades are my favourite at the moment.

I have had to stop and put on my socks, it is so cold.

  A very warm welcome to my new followers.   It is a joy to me that you have chosen to join me at Dream Laine.

Sending hugs to all.
