Art by Miran Delightful Daphne Facebook Progressive Challenge Using CTMH Florence Paper

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  The weather has been cooler here in Southern CA; which is very nice for a change.  We have a fabulous new Art by Miran Facebook Progressive Challenge; which will continue until June 2nd.   If you entered last month's Progressive Challenge; be sure to request your free image for May.  If you are new to this challenge; you can purchase this month's freebie at a discounted price and enter your creation on Facebook.  Then you are eligible for the next months image free again. 

The folder is located under Photos; then Albums; and then under May Progressive Challenge.  We would love to have more entries and the digi stamps are fabulous!  I love this month's gorgeous new image - Delightful Daphne!  She is so adorable!  I was very excited when I got her.  For more information; please click here and join Art By Miran Facebook group.  The post at the top of the page is always the progressive challenge.

Unfortunately, I had to fly to MO for my Mother's Funeral and Burial; so that is why I am late on getting this card completed.  I have been exhausted; plus severe migraines from all the horrible cologne/perfume/smells that I had to endure on the trip and at the funeral.   

I hope you enjoy my card.  She is so sweet.  Those are sequins on the right side of the card.  I never noticed that they looked like eyes; until I added the picture to this blog.  LOL!
