Summer Day

Hi there. I meant to post this earlier today, but I got a phone call from the school telling me my daughter was not feeling well. Turns out she had a really bad case of the "Fake-a-Flu". Well...here I am, FINALLY able to post this card I made this morning. I used this adorable digi image from Maurie J. Manning. I just love these images. They look just like my middle child. So, I colored this one to look like her. I used colored pencils, and Gamsol to smooth the lines. The PP is from Imaginisce. The ribbon in Maya Road, and the flowers are CM.
This card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - Sketch
Do you Stack up? - Cute as a Button
7 Kids College Fund - Hot or Cold - I went with summery hot.
