Art Creations Friday

I have certainly had a busy morning! I have the day off today which allowed me to participate in three challenges (it helps when you are up at four in the morning, too). I didn't even have to combine any of the challenges!
This last card I made with the beautiful image offered by Art Creations Friday. I wanted to make a set of note cards to give as a gift, so this is one of them. I printed the picture out on vellum and it shows the patterned paper behind it very nicely.

What a great idea to print the image out on vellum - gives it quite an ethereal quality. Gorgeous colours and collaging.

Oh what a lovely serene and dreamy feel you've created with this piece. It suits the little girl who is looking so contemplative.
