A Happy Monday Card

 *Note: I've jumped on the bandwagon and signed up with Bloglovin. The button can be found in my sidebar. *

Happy Monday, my friends!
I have another card to share with you today! I've used another Digi Darla Designs image. This one is called Brianna's Bike. I recently won a few more of these sweet images and was having trouble deciding on the final image. (It's hard because they're all so adorable!) So I had my husband pick the last one, and this was his choice. I think he did very well!
After coloring up the image, I used some pretty Prima papers, and my new Butterfly Chain edge punch. The punch was one of the fun new toys my husband gave me for my birthday. Then I punched out some flowers and added some pearls!
I'd like to thank you all for the super sweet comments on my last posts! You guys are the greatest!! Also, thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes! It's still my "birthday week" so my celebrations are just going to continue! I hope you all have a fun week of celebrating your joys too! :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Prima - Sparkling Spring,
Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Digi Darla Designs - Brianna's Bike;
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Punches: EK Success - Butterfly Chain Edger,
Martha Stewart - Hydrangea;
Ink: Martha Stewart - Pink Geranium;
Pearls: Stampin' Up.

Here's the great sketch from Card Crafter's Circle that I used for my card. I turned it upside down:

This is really cute and it looks like this little gal is pedaling right into spring so your hubs did good! I really like those little flowers and another thing I like, but am almost afraid to say it... it's the butterfly. I like how you've brought the pearls through the whole body and then his flight lines are smaller. Sometimes it can look like the 'D' word (I know you don't say it) but this one is perfect! Love all the little pearls in the flowers and that butterfly border is very nice.
