Guylous Inimitability Smile Challenge

So Guylou's Inimitability is having a Smile Challenge and the only requirements for it were that you used her Smile Bingo card and one of her images. When I first saw this challenge I was so excited...I knew exactly what I was going to do....and then we lost our Lady...and I was lost. So my plans changed....
We brought Lady home yesterday and I wanted to do something to commemorate her life...and this is what I came up with. Doesn't she have a great smile? I know I smile everytime I see this picture.  I used the Bingo card and Guylou's wonderful little Christmas freebie, Sundae with heart. I colored her so that she looked like our dog Molly...and of course Molly had to help so she put her paw marks on it and gave it a woof! I also used a new image from Priscilla Style's...it's called a Heart flourish and comes in a set of three.
I used card stock from my stash (sorry, there was no name for it), and white cardstock from Michael's. I traced around Lady's name, the love image and the bingo board with metallic pink pen from Bartell's. Molly's heart is colored in red glitter pen.
I also used some flowers by Portafolia and little pink and blue pearls given to me from a very wonderful lady. The tennis balls have gold glitter on their stripes.


 I colored Molly and the Smile on the bingo card with SU water colors and I colored the Love image with metallic pink, blue and green pens. Each flower has a gold center.
