Little miss sunshine

Here is a lo using my sarahs cards june kit i just adore these papers and managed to get some suitable pics printed so i could use it i have been trying to keep myself busy this afternoon and managed to do this lo am pleased with how its turned out i drew around a flower template and used half the flower on the right hand side and drew some false sticthing around the edges i used the scalloped edge of a piece of the pp down the left side put a strip of ribbon and added a bloom with a heart in the middle and also a felt heart embellishment on the other side i cut the rainbow/cloud/bird from the sheet of pp and arranged around the photo white alpha is from a swap i recently took part in and i drew stiching on these to give them a more better effect the pink alpha is from my teamie penny that she sent me a while ago and also drew sticthing on to those

Close up the bird is raised on 3d pads to give it a bit of dimension
Bloom with a sequin/bead love heart in the centre
This is to show the drawn stitching on the letters a little better
