Ella with Flowers

I am getting really upset because I am not able to craft as much as I want to with my bad neck - and yes I am STILL waiting to hear when my op will be despite chasing them up twice already!! (can you guess I am not good at waiting for things to happen?) - but I have come up with htis card for several challenges ~

Using the ever so cute Ella with Flowers from Digistamp Boutique I coloured her with my Promarkers and cut out the shape using a Nellie Snellen die inking the edges with a PM.  Following Sketch Saturday's sketch, the DPs are from Funky Hand's Very Funky Blue for Boys range and darak brown pearlised paper from my stash.  The flowers I made using a Marianne Die Cut with the same papers and added a pearl gem to the centres.  The sentiment is computer generated - easy to do when you have access to a printer etc.

I am entering this into the following challenges ~
Digi image Ella with Flowers from Digistamp Boutique coloured with Promarkers ~ Ivory, Blush, Caramel, Sandstone, China Blue, Cornflower, Marsh Green, Apple & Satin;
Papers from Funky Hand's Blue for Boys range on Very Funky CD;
Pearlised dark brown paper and white card from stash;
Gems from stash.
