Dusk in Lovers Pavilion

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I just received news a little while ago that a good friend has lost her mother.  So it was with a very heavy heart that I spent the later part of the day coloring and praying.  I had printed out earlier in the day a compilation of two stamps. The Lovers Pavilion is from Make It Crafty and the little angel is from Crafts and Me (her name is Dusk).  
Hmmm.. in real life the sky and clouds look a whole lot better.. what's up with that? I used my own technique for doing the clouds. Even though I now have the airbrush system I still prefer to do them "my" way. You can see that here.
Here's a few close ups:
I do love how the roof of the pavillion turned out. Here's a close up of just Dusk:
Look at her with those cute bunnies!! Wouldn't that make an adorable image for Easter?
If you were here earlier in the week I had mistakingly called this precious angel "Shey".. her name is "Dusk". Huge apologies!! But I did get one thing right.. lol. You can get her at Crafts and Me.

Hi Dana,
So sad about our mutual friend :( I don't know what anyone could say to make her feel better, such a terrible time for her and all her family.
Your card is so stunning. I don't know what your beef is with the clouds... I can't see anything wrong with them! Thanks for joining us at MIC. Love your awesome card :)

Hugs, Meesh. XXX
