I made this card intending to join the fun over at Bee Crafty for the "Photo Inspiration" challenge..... But I think I might not make the deadline again... The challenge is to draw inspiration from the photo below and to use any digital image.
This is one of my favorite digital images from Bee Crafty called Whimsical Girl. I adore her chubby face. I also love that she is holding the flowers behind her as if she is ready to give it to someone as a sweet surprise!

I was inspired by the pink, dark pink and green colors in the photo. Also, since it's a photo of a bouquet, I thought I would add some doodled flowers to her dress... So you can see that I don't have the talent for drawing,,, The flowers just look a bit weird to me.... I also added the grass on the ground to give it a more finished look.

I am also so honored and happy that Bee put one of my Whimsical Girl cards on her "Bee Crafty's Designer Spot!!!" Thank you so much Bee!! =)

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!
