I hope that everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weedend. This is my card for the CC220 challenge at SCS.

The image is by Penny Black and I love her, she is so cute and shy looking. The colors for today's challenge are: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron.

The image was done in watercolors and piecing. The dp's are from a stack that I got at Cosco. I stamped the image four times, the first onto WW and watercolored the skin, the boots, shadows in the dress and the flowers, the second onto a yellow dp for the hair and touched up in CC, the third and forth are different dp's for the dress.

I used a MS punch for the borders, the cut flowers are by K&C Company and finished with a satin ribbon that I threaded thru 2 punched holes. I also cut and popped-up the flowers at her feet.

I really like how this one turned out, I wasn't fussy about doing an orange toned card again. I really would love to see some Spring colors for the CC challenge.

Tell me what you think of my card? Hugs, Nicole
