....if friends were flowers!!

Good Morning and welldone Juliet for your wonderful first post.
As I put the boat and sand bags out ready for the next bout of flooding it reminded me of summer and flowers!!
For this card I used an image from Dress up Dottie and the well known sentiment,which I love, I added using Word Art on the pc. I printed once on the Basic Grey paper and 3 times on plain paper, then I added one full Dottie, which I embellished with watercolour pens,Sakura Gelly roll clear glitter pen and holographic glitter for her Arum lillies she is holding. I then cut the whole head out of another piece of paper and then just the head dress removing Dotties face and added to the image giving a decoupage effect. I added faux stitching and base of flowers with an archival pen,then finished off with the metallic pink brads for the flowers.
