Hi and Welcome card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Sometimes an image gives you ideas and inspiration to use it in a different way like this and I love it when that happens to me. I had coloured this gorgeous image from Polkadoodles not knowing how my card would look and then I decided to create a type of scene and I think it's turned out really cute (if I do say so myself hehe). She is such a sweetie isn't she? I die cut a planter and added some flowers & hearts to it. I embossed white cardstock with my brick folder then inked over it in the mint and pink so the "bricks" look coloured.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this card or all of my cards tonight, I love knowing that people have popped by my blog so thank you for dropping by :)
