Another One for Four!

Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. Only one more sleep until they are all back at school - YEAH! And...Wee Steven has been given an afternoon nursery place starting from 3 September so even more time for cards, lol! It will be quite strange without them all...Though I am sure I will get used to and even enjoy it quite quickly, lol!

This one has been made for four challenges:

1.) My Time to Craft - A Sketch;
2.) ABC - 'A' is for Anything goes and added option of animals;
3.) Daring Cardmakers - Lace;
4.) Pollycraft Monday - Favourite Things.

The image is Em praying from the Childs Prayer Collection over at Digital Pencil Too. I thought this was gorgeous when I first seen it and had to have it. I have coloured her with watercolour pencils and also Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints. The design papers are actually from a HOTP book - Disney Princess 8x8 papers. I have had these for absolutely ages now and this is only the 2nd time I've had them out! The cardstock is from my stash as is the ribbon. The flowers are ones bought from Craft at Home mixed with paper punched retro ones and also a button from my stash added to the centre. I have added a wee handmade charm thingy to the ribbon. And the top strip has been punched with my new Martha Stewart doily lace punch.

So, I have followed the sketch, have added lace, have used my favourite colour combo and my favourite punch and...Em has her rabbit with her for the animal option.
I am very pleased with this one. Hope you like it too.

*ETA: I am now entering this one into an extra challenge. A brand new challenge blog over at Crafty Cardmakers. I was just having a wee look on my docrafts gallery and I had a comment on this one telling me I could enter. The theme this week is Blossoms. The DT cards look great and thanks very much to Vicki for letting me know.
