With Love using Adorable Joy

Hello everyone I do hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.Tonight I would like to share this little cutie with you and I thought I would venture out of my compfort zone of pinks and purples and try a more warmer approach.
I was very lucky last week to win over 250 sheets of beautiful papers from the gorgeous Elaine and these were some of my favourites thankyou so much Elaine.
I have used the gorgeous Joy digital image from the Adorables from sugar Nellie and coloured her using promarkers.Other materials used are Tea Dye Distress ink,pearls,Spellbinders Fancy tags and some pretty organza ribbon.
I even had some good feedback from Rob my partner for this one he really loved the colours on this one.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:

Crafty creations-Lets heat it up
Crafty purple frog-distressing
Samuel Taylors Challenge-copics/promarkers
Paperplay-Layer it up
Stamptacular Sunday-Whateva
Stampin for the weekend-warmed up
Totally gorjuss-As you like it
Auds Sentiments-Love theme sentiment
I hope you like my card this evening and I will catch you all later
Lorraine xx

Such a beautiful card Lorraine, and I do love this image. Glad you can put some of the papers to use, and it's always good to use something that's out of your comfort zone, as with the paper colours.. but you wouldn't guess that they're not what you'd normally pick, you've shown them off to their best.
Love Elaine xx
