My little piece of Paradise

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'm new to blogging, only started at the beginning of January 2014. In that time I have had a lot of fun participating in various challenges and have been inspired by so many of you. I'm new to card making but enjoy it so much. I've been a scrapbooker for many years and card making seemed like the next logical step:)
I hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to leave me a comment or follow my blog. HUGZ :)

CFTH ~ Flowers

Good day to all :)
Hope everyone is feeling ok, me... not so much.
There has been a bad cold going around our house and alas.... i seem to have caught it.. ughhhhhhh
I would love to say that i have been spending lots of time crafting but instead i'll say that i have been spending lots of time curled up in my recliner lol...
I hear my husband moaning in the next room as i write this lol... MEN!!

Well this week at Crafting From The Heart, the theme is "Flowers", so come on over and show us your creations. Remember that the challenge is always anything goes so it's ok if you didn't use flowers :)
I also want to mention that starting the beginning of March, the challenge will be going weekly!

The Image i chose this week is from Aurora Wings. I must say that this image was such a challenge for me in many ways. First, the amount of detail in this image and trying to choose colours was a huge challenge. Next... her hair!!!!  OMG i must have coloured and erased a million times before i finally has happy with it..... the problem was with the shape i printed the image out on.. i didn't realize at the time that the black lines for her hair were very short and did not reach to top of my image so i had to imporvise and drawn my way through it lol....but  i think it turned out and i'm very happy with it :)  My very last challenge was to choose papers and colours... i started with a step card then scraped that one,  I then cut a shell shaped card.... scraped that one too lol... I also started with teal, then went darker, then decided on the blue and grey!!!!
I used lots of stickles and pearls for this one too
OMG!!!!!!! lol

Well here it is and I hope you like :)

 Cheers xo
