Hello friends, and Happy Friday!  I'm so glad you have come back for another visit to my blog!  Today I am sharing a card made with an image from the NEW RELEASE at Digi Doodle Studios called Relax & Unwind.  We can all use some of that, can't we?

For my card, I chose to work with the adorable ChanilleShe's so sweet, just sitting there listening to her music.  I used a couple of papers from the Lawn Fawn Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad and used alcohol markers to color her to match.  I couldn't find a cardstock that matched the papers though, so I just colored the edges of the matting layers with the BG11 Copic marker.  I followed this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for my card layout:

I pretty much followed this to a "T", except I substituted some layered hearts for the flower.  The word "enjoy" comes from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords die set, and I colored this and the hearts with alcohol markers also.  The thin pink ribbon was a scrap I have had laying around for a LONG TIME, and the enamel dots are a new acquisition from Hobby Lobby.
