Sweet Annabelle by Conie Fong

Hi peeps!  I am so happy that I love creating cards.  It keeps my mind off the uncertainty in the world.  My DT card is for Conie Fong's current Facebook challenge.  This lovely beauty is "Sweet Annabelle", found here:
What a wonderfully versatile image this is.

I used my favourite mediums to colour her (Copics and Polychromos).  I made the flowers and the pinwheel bow.  I covered the butterfly with Martha Stewart's glitter.  That's all from me today.  Take good care of yourselves.  Hugs, Lori xx
