Sunshine and Giggles Monday

Good Morning! Happy Monday. I hope your week is off to a great start! I had a pretty good weekend and this week will be busy getting hubby ready to travel. He's getting so excited about his big trip. And guess what! I didn't do hardly any stamping over the weekend. *GASP!!*

But last night I did make a card knowing I had to get something together for Sunshine Monday. I decided to use the sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity and it was a challenging sketch for me. Not the sketch itself, but how I wanted to pull off what was going on in my head. Here's what I came up with.



I'm sorry the photo is on the gray side, it's overcast outside so I'm not getting very good lighting even though I took it outside. Someday I'm going to build me a photo studio in a box. The box part isn't hard, its the lighting I have to get on a tight budget.

Anyway, back to the card. I used Sunshine and Giggles precious little girl that is collecting flowers. I omitted the flowers in her dress by using a Memento Tuxedo Black tear drop which is great for detail work. I colored her with Prismacolor markers, Buff for her skintone and Pewter for the skirt of her dress which worked so well with this mat stack that I've had for ages. I am pleased with the results and let me say this was the 2nd try at this card. I hope you like it, too. Please visit Janice and the rest of the design team to see their creations, too.

Thanks for stopping by.
