You Belong Among the Flowers card (The East Wind image)

Hi everyone,

I love this beautiful image from The East Wind, isn't she so flowy and dreamy? While colouring her hair, one of my brown copics decided to over flow and created a huge blob hence the fussy cut design hehe, I feel lucky it didn't ruin the image as I was almost finished colouring her when it happened. I have glittered up her skirt so have shown a close up below that shows the shimmer. 

I used a couple of gorgeous flowers and a pearl coloured flourish (called Jasmine Laser) from my company Flourish with a Bling, for this card, I hope you'll visit my online store as we have all our products priced at $2 for June.
