Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  We're halfway to the weekend already!  How good is that?  I am popping in this morning with a card to share with you.  It's my turn to post some DT inspiration over on the Digi Bells blog and I have chosen to showcase the adorable Fireflies from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Summer Bliss 6x6 pad.  I printed the cute image on MiC Blending card and colored it with my Copics.  I colored in a twilight sky and some grass with my Copics, too.  The sentiment was computer-generated.  I added some Yellow Stickles to the fireflies and the flame in the lantern and some Glossy Accents to the lantern and jars.  A bit of bling finished my card. 
Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to visit the Digi Bells blog every day for wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT using the beautiful images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.
