Hey Girlfriend!

Hello again friends!  I didn't make it back here yesterday.  I managed to get my image colored and my paper cut, but I battled a wicked headache all day so I wasn't able to finish my card.  It's done now though!

I used a great image from Sassy Cheryl's called Sam's Rainy Day.  I think she is so cute peeking out from under her umbrella.  Unfortunately I missed the challenge I was going to put her in.  Oh well.  Hopefully I'll make the challenge for this coming week.  So, here she is.
I colored cute, little Sam with my Prismacolor pencils.  I blended the colors on the umbrella with my odorless mineral spirits.  I like how it turned out.
The DP was from my stash.  The seam binding and flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I used lace and ribbon from my stash and added some pearl sprays and adhesive pearls too  :)
I added Stickles to the flowers.  I don't always but it sure makes the card look bright and cheery  :)
I embossed the solid color squares with an Impressabilities die.  I really love this one.  It's pretty but it can also be fun and playful.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes
Cooking It Up With Katie - Make It a Green, Gorgeous Garden
Pixie Cottage - Sketch & make it for mom or another lady
Fairytale Challenge Blog - Yellow & Green
Paper Sundaes - Ribbon & Pearls
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Plants or Green
Creative Inspiratios - Anything

That's about it.  I'm kinda tired, that headache wore me out.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs
