Oh to be Young Again

Hi girls. The rain is back with a vengence here although it is still very warm. I do hope summer is not away for good - I have a lot of sunning to catch up on.Lol. Thanks for calling in to see me to see what might be on offer. I hope you like what you find here. Thanks for the comments you left on yesterdays card that I wasn't too sure about. I think some of you were right in that it lacked some colour round the image to relieve the starkness of the white card it was stamped on. Thanks for your honest opinions.
I made this card, again with no challenges in mind. I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Little Girls Swing" and coloured it using a mixture of Copics and Polychromos Pencils. This image reminds me of my childhood (yes my memory goes back that far). The paper is from the Paper Cellar and I have used Bazzil as a mount. I made some handmade flowers from Bazzil and used a few bits and bobs from my stash. The flowers have been stickled and glimmer misted for effect.
I would as usual love to read any comments you are kind enough to leave for me. I hope you have a good day and enjoy everything you do.
Hugs,

  21. Beautiful card Fiona. Love that image and the flowers are gorgeous. I missed your previous card and I see what some of the others mean about the edges of the white oval. I'm quite into inking my edges just now!
