Thinking of You

Hello again, and thanks for stopping by.  Today I have a card with a sweet image from Crafts and Me called Dear Diary.  I chose this image because of the challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.  The challenge this time is a photo inspiration and as soon as I saw the photo I knew I wanted to use this image.

I colored this cutie with my Prismacolor pencils.  Her skin is a little orange  :(  I certainly need more practice, but I do like how the toadstools turned out.  The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid, of course, and the charm is from Hobby Lobby I think.

The great DP are from MME.  The pad is called Deena's Penny Lane.  These are the first sheets I've used from this pad and I can't wait to use more.  They are gorgeous and fun!  So much glitter on them!  The sentiment is from an old SU set.  It's my go-to set for cards.  So classic.

I made the front and inside left panel to follow the sketch from Graphicat Sketch Challenge.  It is a great sketch with all the layers so I thought I would repeat part of it on the inside.  The writing panel is embellished with my new favorite stamps from Inkadinkadoo (Flourishes).  Love this set!!

The back has one more layer than normal and I added stitching.... nothing wrong with looking great coming and going  ;)

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
