I've done an extra card this month for the second week of our "Cute with a Sentiment" challenge at Aud Sentiments. Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine and I used a favorite image from my own collection, "NanaNancy." She may have already been discontinued but she's so perfect as a celebration of my family's summer garden tradition and it's a rare summer that I don't find some excuse to use her on a card. The mushrooms are from the LS "Gnome Digi Bits" set.
The sketch came from Papertake Weekly
# 38, turned 1 quarter turn.
I colored Nana Nancy with my ProMarkers, then cut the image into a square and distressed the edges all the way around. The CS was salvaged from the scrap basket and I distressed each piece of it. I printed, colored, and fussy cut the mushrooms, then popped them up on dimensional dots. Both ribbons are from my stash. Those plus the dimension and distressing add lots of texture to this otherwise CAS design.

OK, you still have another week to enter the "Cute" challenge so get going, don't forget the sentiment, and I'll see you at Aud Sentiments. Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
