Digi Bells GDT - Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a terrific start!  We spent the entire weekend working on my craft room.  Poor hubby worked like a dog getting the room painted and putting together some of my new furniture/storage pieces. I think he was glad to head back to work today!  There's still a lot to do, but it's looking fantastic so far.  I'll post some pictures when everything is done.  Anyway, it's my turn to post on The Digi Bells blog today as part of my GDT term.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the pretty patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Memorable" 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC. Some pearl flourishes, Pearl Pen accents and a few Wild Orchid Crafts Sweetheart Blossoms finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to catch up on your blogs later after a do a little more organizing this morning.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
