Digi Bells DT Card

Good Day E Bell Friends~~only 2 days to the New Year!!
I am here to share a card I made for The Digi Bells Blog today!!!
I used the following sketch to create with "Lots of Love" ~~found in the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.
This sketch is from the blog~~ Craft your passion
the following is a card I made which is.... a "Just Because" card.........I just love getting surprises myself at random times throughout the year :D
Enjoy the pics and Recipe will be detailed at end of post ;)

Copics used--Hair and shoes... N3, 5, 7, 10   Skin..E 13, 11, 01, 00, R22   Dress...R85, 83, 81, white and grey pastel pencils   Boy's hair....E49, 27, 25, dark and light umber prisma pencils    Boy's pants....G99, 85, 82  Boy's shirt..

***TIP***I just have to share.... that the HC Belle Rose leaf was cut out and then when I embossed had shifted under the embossing mat and at first I was upset but after I looked at it---and looked at it-----and the longer I stared at it........I thought how clever and unique this turned out :0)  so I then inked edges litely with TH aged mahogany ink and added rest of flowers and ribbon!!!

I just love this image and it's colored so wonderfully! Your layout looks amazing as well.
I've read your tip and I'm not exactly sure what the tip is, but I'm guessing it is...just go with mistakes because sometimes they turn out amazingly? Yours certainly did!

Thank you SO much for sharing your talent with us at Top Tip Tuesday. :)
Hugs and Happy New Year in 2012!
