A little Sugar Nellie inspiration

Good morning Sugar lovers... did you have an enchanting Easter weekend??? 
I had the very much needed chance to spend some quality time with my hubby.... the weeks seem to fly by, and days spent together are far and few.
Before the weekend I managed to rustle up a cheery little number using a much loved Diane Duda image. This is "Believe

I used some Easter paper, and drew inspiration from them to colour this little lady up .
Using my spectrums 
Skin: FS4.5.6,TN2,3

Such a simple image, I think it didn't need any fuss, and just simple additions, like the sentiment,(which is from TLC) and a few pearls . I think the layout was from a sketch from the LOTV sketch page.
So, all thats left is to enter this in a few challenges...
1.Card mania - Fairies
2.Make my Monday - Distress It 
3.Robyn's Fetish - Square cards

The "Catch a wave" border is also from Die-namics , I cut 1 in kraft, then 1 in DP. I distressed everything with my Vintage photo DI pad, and matted the layers of kraft and Dp together, for a simple LO. Et voila!!!!
