MAMA DREAMS - A DAY FOR DAISIES

My DT showcase card on the A Day for Daisies blog today features the beautiful image called Mama Dreams

I coloured the image with alcohol marker and a white gel pen, and added some Stickles

The corners are punched and I added some flowers from the sentiment, sized up a tad, coloured with alcohol markers and fussy cut.  I popped them up on some foam blocks to create a little dimension
