Relish Small Pleasures

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a great start!  I am already behind and it's only the first day of the week!  I hope to catch up as the days go on.  I am here now because it's my turn to share some DT inspiration over on The Digi Bells blog.  My card today features the sweet A Tasty Read from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Chocolate Chip and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel 6x6 pad.  I colored the cute image with my Copics and added a bit of grass with my Copics, too.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A triple-loop seam binding bow, a pewter leaf charm and a few pearls from my stash finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Digi Bells blog often for wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT using the charming images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.

  1. This reminds me a sitting out on a nice fall day reading and your color scheme make it seem like fall. This is a darling image and you've "done her proud". Great card, Carla.

  2. Such a darling image and colored to perfection as always! Wonderful colors and I love that she is sitting on a stump!

  3. Carla, this is so pretty! Beautifully colored and that single embellishment is so elegant. I do love Elisabeth Bell and you give the images such a wonderful presentation. Of course, I still have paper envy when it comes to you! :D)
