Cotton Candy anyone?

Yet another image in my Mo Manning marathon!  Don't you just love it when you find an artist that does images that make to smile, and smile and smile.  These are those kinds of images!
This is a valentines card for a 'sweet' little girl that I know. (I only have boys)

Gorgeous outside today.  Took this picture out on my table on the deck.  Could figure out why all the photos had those shadings on the white.  It'ss the crinkly glass on the table. LOL  Oh well, you will just have to trust me that it is just plain Neenah solar white paper, smooth!

The DP is from my stash.
The butterfly is a Die-namics stacking die set.
Twine from The Twinery.
Sentiment from Meljens Design.
There is cotton candy Sparkly Fluff from OCL on the cotton candy.  Doh!
The stick on half pearls are from Creative Charms (won them in a blog hop!)
The die cut around the sentiment and along the edge of the image are from Spellbinders
Colored with Copic Markers, edges distressed and some paper piercing in the corners finish it off!

I got the idea for the coloring, "Pink, Green and a pop of Purple, Pierce and Distress" from a challenge that I found on line at Joan's Gardens  and thought it would be perfect for this card.  She also has one of the most complete grouping of dies available for purchase that I have seen anywhere.  Alot of dies that I haven't found elsewhere or had to order from the UK (with ridiculous shipping fees!)

Have a "SWEET" weekend.
