Sunshine ~

I'm ba-ack!  Here's another little card that used the Mojo Monday sketch #152 as a jumping point.  This little sweetie is from the Eat Cake Graphics red rubber set, Princess for a Day.  She is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI SS White cardstock and colored with Copics.  Her dress is paper pieced with the papers used on the card - Memory Box Sprout.  The paper has been in my stash for quite some time, so I would assume it's retired.  She needed to be *grounded*, so to speak, so I added some grass and flowers with Lyra color pencils.  I drew in flowers with a darker purple to coordinate with the Prima flowers on the card.
The inside is finished off with another pretty paper from the Sprout line.  I stamped a little sentiment from a Verve set in Chocolate Chip ink.  It says, "Some people make the world special just by being in it."                              That's it for me today!  Not sure if I'll have anything else to post this week before Saturday!  Big day there! 
First, we have the Paper Garden Projects Garden Walk blog tour celebrating fall.  You'll want to be sure to play along since there's a nice big prize involved!  Then I have a bridal shower on Saturday immediately followed by a baby shower.  On Sunday I have a stamping party to go to.  I'm a bit of a hermit, so by the time the party is over on Sunday, I'm sure I'll want to crawl back into my cave for a bit! LOL  Hope you're having a great week!!  :o) lyss

So soft and pretty - drawing in the flowers is just your genius peeking thru :>) Have fun while you survive the weekend. My husband wants to go to the Bronx zoo on Sunday.
