I hate that the photo of this card doesn't do it justice. I've taken it outside and inside and I just can't capture the true colors. We have some friends moving to China later this month and I wanted to do a card for several of us to sign and give them. So, I'm sure it will be appreciated, as it really is quite lovely, even if I do say so myself.
The little lady is one of a few digital beauties that came from Mami Doodles that I couldn't resist. The background scene is from Doodle Pantry, another site where you can get some awesome digital images.
The background scene was colored with my prismacolor pencils, and the little lady with my new Promarkers. Her dress is paper pieced from paper from K&Company, as is the rest of the dps on the card. The sentiment is from Polka Doodles Back to Nature cd. The pearls from Recollections and the buttons are from Wal-Mart. I cut the window frame out on my Cricut, using the "George" cart. Oh, and the scalloped border is from EK Success that I got on clearance at Target last week.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday Challenge - use images from two stores
