Blowing in the Wind by Ching-Chou Kuik

Happy Monday, friends!  The weather here has cooled down considerably.  Fall is almost here!  Today, I am sharing with you my inspirational card for Ching-Chou's Facebook challenge. 

This month's theme is "Think Pink for Breast Cancer".  However, the Design Team members' theme for this week is "Decorative Borders".  This truly stunning image is "Blowing in the Wind", found here:

I coloured this lovely image with my favourite mediums (Copics and Polychromos).  I added a bit of Wink of Stella (clear) to her wings and to the butterflies.  The flowers are from I Am Roses.  The sentiment is raised with 3-D foam.

Ching-Chou also has a challenge blog.  
If you enter either challenge, or both, you may win some beautiful images from her.  So, why not join in the fun?

Thank you for visiting.  I love to read your comments.  Until next time...hugs, Lori xx
