Truly remarkable

Well, here I am again up late as usual, my OH is sleeping in the spare room as our granddaughter is here and is sleeping in our bed with me. She tends to kick him in the back LOL so he decided he might as well start off in the other bed instead of getting up in the middle of the night and moving. She's only 3 so it's easier to have her sleep in our bed.
I went to my son and DIL's to pick her up today, it's about an hours drive away. They all have colds, so hoping not to pick it up! Stayed for lunch with them and then came home. Adrian didn't know she was coming so she hid and surprised him and then they played some matching card games and did a couple of jigsaws and then Hungry Hippo, that is so noisy!!!
Anyway I did make a card.
I've used Kula Cream which is a very pale coffee colour as the base card and then DP from KaiserCraft - Le Chateau Collection, a Nellie Snellen die cut and the image and sentiment are from Elegant Ladies - Creative Expressions.
I stamped the sentiment with Close to Cocoa and the lady with Basic Grey and then coloured her with Copics, To finish off I added some red bling to the die cut.
The scan is not quite true to colour, the dress etc are more red, I tried a couple of photos but they were a bit bland.
I would like to enter this into Make It Monday #58 - Anything goes
and also Anything Goes Challenge Blog Challenge 51 - Die Cuts, Punches or both.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments too.
Take Care,
