LIFE is good

Hey Everybody,
Hope you all are having a great week, and that "Life is good", as the sentiment reads in my next card.
This is another image from Digi Doodle Shop, and is one of my favorites that Mom created.  I did redraw her hair.  My eyes are so bad, and I couldn't see to color the skin in between the hair locks.  Other than that, she's still the same adorable little baby girl, and of course I colored her with my ProMarkers.  
There are a few challenges out there for something new, so I opted to learn how to crochet around the image, and make some embellishments.  Below are links  to the tutorials, should you want to give any of them a try.  The leaves for the little flowers I kind of made up myself, but I'm sure there are plenty of tutorials for leaves.
Image Frame - gnomesnest
Tiny Flowers - Pollymakes
Tiny Bow - bobwilsion123
Tiny Butterflies - Tiny Butterflies
Papers used:  Prints Serendipity Paper Pack by Hot Off The Press, Solid White and Pink by Colorbok.  Buttons are from sticko, called Button Ups
Sentiment made in Paint Shop Pro
Thank you for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.
