Life Happens!



So sweet! I made this card for a friend who has life happening all over her! Thought sending her a smile would help!

I used the lovely sketch from the Lili of the Valley challenge blog! The Roses on Paper challenge wanted us to make a card for a friend or loved one! With this lovely K&co paper I wanted to add just a little color to my sweet image. I used oil pastels, SU marker & colored pencils. I'm really pleased with the results! Hope you had a lovely day! Blessings!
