Life is a fairytale

    I'd give anything to draw a good stick figure.  Tammy doesn't have that problem does she.  LOL  This week's release from A Day For Daisies is a group of beautiful ladies with birdies decorating their hair.  This image is called "Braid In My Hair" and can be found with the others in the ADFD store.
     I did the image in Distress inks first, but thought the colors needed to be bolder with the papers I'd chosen.  So I brought out the Copics and used the Distress inks on everything else.  LOL  I used lots of foam too. The musical mat, black and oval die cut panel, and the image are all popped up on foam.  Guess you can tell I had fun making those roses on yesterday's card too.  I just had to add some more to this one.  :-)  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.
    This release marks the start of a new challenge at the ADFD blog and our challenge is to add a feather or two.  I've got three little fluffy ones tucked in behind my flowers.  We'd love to have you come play along.
