Follow your Heart

You know we all have our favorite artists, and I like so many, LOVE Mo Manning! This sweet image is "to grammy's" and the theme at Mo's DP2 Challenge this week is Lace with a Mo image. I had so much fun coloring this image and adding the DP papers from Prima's Annalee collection. The paper flowers are from Papermart and the rosewood is Martha Stewart's medium branch punch. I also used my Cuttlebug with my Spellbinders nestabilities heart circles, Memory Box Crisp Bows and Sofia heart, along with my Sizzix oval dies. The sentiment was a freebie via Free Digital Stamps from Broken Box Stock. The lace is Hero Arts and 1/8" light blue satin ribbon from The Ribbon Boutique via my LCS.
Followed the sketch over at Seems A Little Sketchy by Jenn
and colored to my heart's content with my copics. Seriously, I live to COLOR!
Even dolled up the inside a bit with another Memory Box Sofia heart and more lace!
Now just a reminder... there is only a week left to enter my Candy for a chance at the giveaway of one Elisabeth Bell image of your choice - but you must enter for the opportunity!
Have a GREAT week!
