Another Bellarific Friday!

I gotta confess, I really lucked out on this one! When I was visiting Paula Saturday I colored up one of my new Ketto's in one of my fav color combo's. I had just finished putting the card together when Emily posted the challenge. I almost FAINTED when I saw it...I looked at the colors, looked at my card and said to hubs...CHECK THIS OUT....I couldn't have matched better if I started from scratch! It must have been mental telepathy!

I paired her up with the Bloom and Grow collection from My Mind's Eye. I love the colors and all the patterns. I picked them up on my Paula road trip and scooped one of each pattern they had, thinking in my head that I could possibly swing mixing up a couple of them on a card. Well, I did bring myself to use three! But I also think I managed not to stray too far from my clean lines and simple style. My BFF Kathy is even surprised that I am using circles these days because I tend to keep things very 'square'...LOL! Yes, Kathy I'm branching out! Maybe one day I might even round corners on the pics in my scrapbooks...but don't hold your breath! LOL!

I colored her in copics, added liquid pearls on the fringe and glitter to her wings and her skirt...in my opinion, all wings need glitter! I also positioned her 'hovering' over the grass which was done with pencils. With her little toes pointed down it almost looks like she is ready to take flight. Maybe she is an angel that just got her wings.

I love my little Agnes Ketto and hope you like her too!
