A Tiddly Ink cutie!

Happy wonderful Wednesday everyone!
 Normally this is my day off from posting but I couldn't resist this cutie.
Tiddly Inks offered this freebie for a limited time, isn't she adorable?
{Wryn Blooms is now available for purchase in the store.}
I decided to try a fun idea that I saw on a friend's Facebook page:
Instead of coloring the entire image, she just colored part of it and left the rest uncolored.
Super fun, but a bit tricky to do!
I suppose I am conditioned to color the entire image so I had to pencil in where to stop. ;)
I made my own 'frame' for this card after seeing them for sale in stores.
Very easy with nesties - just layer two together (in this case a square into a label) then run them through.
Voila! A frame - and a great way to use up scraps.
I am playing along in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping in to see me!
Hug those you love and keep praying for Oklahoma.

Eek! I love it! Such a neat way to use an image in a different way - ugh, my vocabulary is not working this morning. I totally lurve the bright colours & the tilted frame! So glad you could come play at Tuesday Morning Sketches with us :)
