11. BNW Challenge - Follow Your Heart

Happy Monday and a great start into the new week! You know what's happening Monday's, don't you? Yes, it's Belles 'n Whistles Challenge time and your chance to win a Belles 'n Whistles stamp of your choice! Of course only if you participate in our challenge ;-)

Our wonderfully talented Rosette is hosting this weeks challenge and she has a color challenge for you:

All shades of
Purple / Lilac / Violet

Aren't these great colors? I love them! And I had tons of fun working on my card and coloring my sweet image 'A Child's Prayer'. I colored Belle using my Copics and choose to go with a different format of my card. This time it's a rectangular card 5x7 and not square as my usual cards are. I also used the sketch from MMSC # 65 to create my card.

The DP is from 'Little Yellow Bicycle' called Zinnia. CS is Bazzill and Best Occasion.
The border is made using the 'Magnolia Doo Hickey' border die.

I also did a little airbrushing around the image with a very light shade of purple.
The sentiment is from Stampin up!

The flowers are from my stash and the little pearl hearts I found recently here.

I hope you like to join in on this fun challenge! To enter and to see all the stunning creations of the BnW DT please visit our challenge blog.
