Hug in an Envelope

Hi again! I'm back with a second post today.  It's my turn to post on The Digi Bells blog today.  I am so enjoying my GDT term with The Digi Bells!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Presh" 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is "I Love You This Much" 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.  The beautiful mulberry roses were from the Sweet Stuff I won from Jacque's blog awhile back.  A few pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for coming by again!  I always appreciate your visits!  You will want to visit The Digi Bells blog often for inspiration from the DT and GDT with Elisabeth's wonderful Digital Collection.

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
