CRAFT #88 & MAWTT #84 & Sugar Bowl #52

Hi girls. This post is a little longer today but I hope you'll persevere through to the end. Thanks for calling in. I hope you like what I am offering today. If it brings a smile then the effort of making it has been worthwhile.
I made this card to enter into three challenges. CRAFT had the theme "In the Roll of a Die", MAWTT wanted "Red" as the predominant colour and The Sugar Bowl gave a fabulous sketch but wanted "Love" as the theme - this little lady loves painting so I hope I can stretch the point. The image is Sugar Nellies "Painting Rainbows" and she is coloured using my trusty Copics. The papers are Magnolia's "Once upon a Time" and some scraps from my stash. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the ribbon and spray are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and that you might have a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think of it. I would love to hear your opinion and know who has visited my blog.
