Mo's DT Guest Spot

Hi everyone, well here we are again, another day, another card! (actually, I've just realised that's the name of my friend Edna's blog!)
This is actually a very special card, well for me anyway, because you see it's my entry into the challenge to choose a guest designer to join Mo's Dream Team for March.
As I'm sure you're all aware by now, I love Mo's images and absolutely adore using them on my cards. I'd seen this challenge a while ago, but decided I wasn't going to enter as my cards are not up to the standard of Mo's DT. Then I thought, what have I got to lose? and it means that I can make another card with one of my favourite now I've entered LOL!
The image I've used is called 'Two Jill - Jill is two, two is hard!'
This is part of a range called 'Two' which includes another little girl and 2 little boys, all in various stages of 'terrible two' behaviour.
The images are all available separately at Digital Pencil, but of course, I had to have the whole set!!! Can you blame me, just look at that wonderful little face, totally adorable.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning's 'Two Jill'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Assorted from my scrap box
* Nestabilities - Scalloped Ovals
* Everything else from my stash.

While I'm here today, I just thought I'd let you know that I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous candy from Bev, which arrived yesterday. Thanks so much Bev, I can't wait to start using it!

This card is a beauty and you would be a very worthy winner of the GD spot (not sure what images you'd find that you haven't already got though!!! lol!!)You underestimate yourself sometimes - you're on my DT for the very good reason that you're very good! So I'm glad you've gone for it and good luck my friend.
