A New Beginning

Hi Guys!
Today was a "for fun" card day. This is the first time Ive colored up this Phindy image which I thought works really well for a baby card.

My Recipe:
Papers: from stash
Flower: handmade with DMC floss
Punch: Martha Stewart
Pearls: Recollection
Lace: from stash

A close up:

And the little carriage which I thought was real cute.

And the flower in all its imperfect glory. :-)

And look guys, see! I am continuing to finish my cards, nothing fancy but I'm getting them done. 

I would like to enter this in
 Phindy's Challenge: Lace and Pearls

Have a great week everyone!

Dorcas your card is adorable! Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I love how the dress does look like it's flowing in the wind. Love the ways you've used the pearls and your flower. Hugs, dj

Sweet!! I can feel the gentle breeze when looking at the picture... I love, that you can often manage to include yellow in your designs - this color gives everything such a "sunny", optimistic touch!
Love the pearls!

All those flowers with pearls are so cute! I wish I could say something new about the colouring, because it's getting so boring to express myself "aah" "ooh". BUT IT IS so darn beautiful work.
