Lazy Sunny Afternoon



I adore this card and unfortunately the light does not do it justice. I have coloured it to show Willow sunning her face and so the light hits on the right and all the colour belnds away to the left. I will try and take another photo of it outside later on. I am adoring my distressed inks and I think that I am slowly getting better at using them too.

I hope you like it.
