Bella & Bronte and May Flowers

Don't you just love this little girl?!?!? She's Bella with her dog Bronte - a Mo's Pencil Digital Image.

She looks just like my Godchild, Eden - so of course, I had to buy her!! See the resemblance??!! This is Eden a year ago - but she still has that full head of curls!!
I made my card for Mo's Challenge #31 - to use a Mo's image and flowers. I made my own felt flower using my brand new Papertrey Ink flower dies - boy did they work well - they cut right through the felt using my Cuttlebug!

The sketch is Mojo Monday #139.

I used colored pencils and Gamsol to color Bella as well as a couple of Copics. Did you notice the cute bumblebee on the brad in the center of the flower? Cute huh!?

Paper: Dark chocolate, vintage cream - PTI, DP - October Afternoon/Rain Boots, Bella Blvd/Estate Sale/Nana's Apron
