Beauty is the gift of God card

Welcome back friends.  It's good to see ya.  I have a card for y'all that showcases one of Shelly's Images.  Check out Shelly's site here.  

One of the challenges I am entering this card in gave us a theme of creating your own background.  I used chalks to create the back ground behind the horse.  I sure hope that counts as creating your own background.  I printed out the image on GP card stock and colored it with colored pencils and OMS.  I added some silver gel pen to the bridle findings.  I had this cute little fence in one of my Recollections sets.  I stamped it three times and cut them out after coloring them with BIC markers.  I added them along the bottom of the card and pulled out some little Prima flowers to add along the fence.  I should have added some vines, but oh well, my flowers are just floating in air.  I stamped the little bluebird and cut him out and added him to the card with a pop dot.  The butterfly and bee are from the same Recollections stamp set that the fence is from and I think it's called Garden Gnome.

I trimmed down the image to 4"x5.25" and put it on a Kraft (Recollections) card base.  I inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo before adhering it.  The sentiment is one I received in a RAK.   Adding a few little gem centers to my flowers finished off the card.

Thanks for stoppin' by.  I hope y'all enjoy Monday.  God bless y'all.
