Wicked Wednesday: #37 Lazy Summer

Hello! My friend Jenn has a challenge blog called Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge. I have been wanting to participate, but had not gotten the chance to do so. But I finally found a few minutes! This week, the challenge is Lazy Summer, and it's sponsored by A Day for Daisies, which, though you may be surprised, I absolutely LOVE their images. Not my typical style by any stretch, but there is something so sweet and magical about their simple lines, and kind faces. I happened to have an image of theirs colored up for a while, so I decided this was the perfect time to use her.

This little darling is called A New Dress. Isn't she precious? I colored the image with mostly pencils, but I used a couple of watercolor markers on her dress.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado. And I made the flowers using the same Tim Holtz die that I used on my card yesterday. I have a feeling I am going to get a LOT of use out of it!

Phoenix helped me pick out my papers...he really loves to do that. And I really like his choices. I hope to get to play along with Wicked Wednesdays again very soon. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
