Dilly Beans Girl

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Stella Says Sketch

Good evening folks.  I've had a very lazy Sunday and boy.... did I need it!!  I did take some time and put together a card I made with one of the new Dilly Beans image I won a few weeks ago.  Megan has created some fascinating images so if you're not familiar with them, go check them out.  The image I've used today is called Girl & Butterfly

 I just had to have one of Dilly Bean's big-eyed girls... they're so fabulous!  She was a joy to work up except for that danged butterfly!  Why?  I don't know but everything I did was just too boring for such a lovely creature!!  So I ended up going with two colors and added lines and dots.  I kinda like how it turned out.  What do you think?  Maybe a darker blue???  I added a couple of punch butterflies with white dots added to them as well.

Anywhoo... that was my Sunday.  Quiet and enjoying making a card for my daughter-in-law's birthday.  I think I'm actually ready for Monday!!  I know... how weird!!  {smile}

You'd have to do something new and special for it to have any chance. Microsoft is one of the biggest software companies in the world and even they are struggling to make their Bing search engine popular. So many people use Google and unless you did something really new and revolutionary it probably wouldn't succeed against Google.
