Heidi among the flowers

1 day down 18 more to go!! Yes I am beginning my countdown for the school year!LOL! I am so ready for summer this year. Dont get me wrong I do *heart* my preK babies but they have spring fever right now and you can tell its near the end of the year!

Okay so onto the card. Sadly this is the only card Ive had a chance to make. My kids had CRCT testing this past week so we were busy, busy!! I colored this CC designs swiss pixie image using copics of course. I tried a new hair color again. This I was going for an ash blonde/brown color. I used e50, e44, and y28. Not exactly thrilled with it but at least something different. I paired Heidi with some MME bloom and grow paper and colored the image to match. Lately Im having to make cards in steps since my time at my stamp table is limited. So it took me about 3 days to make this card!LOL!! I started out coloring her skin and hair the first night then left it alone. The next night I picked out the dp and colored her to match. Then the 3rd night I put the card together. I used last weeks Sunday sketch for my layout and used another of Tori's bows like in my previous card. I love using this for scraps of wider ribbon! I was actually trying a new sponging method on this card too that didnt work out so I think I will go back to my previous way of doing it! Have a great day!
