Time to Water the Garden

     As hot as it's been the past few days, I've had to make sure the garden was well watered so that things didn't wilt and die.  This sweet image from Whoopsi Daisy (Tic Tac Toe challenge where I used the first column) caught my eye and was just waiting for me to color it and showcase it on a card.  :-D


I used the sketch from The Outlawz,
adjusting it from square to an A2 size rectangle.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it into a simple rectangle and matted it.  The frame is cut with a Gina Marie die and everything is mounted onto a black card front.  I added silver ribbon to the bottom with a polka dot bow.  I did faux stitching on the image and on the frame.  I added a double-layer, die cut butterfly, and a few gems on each side of the bow.

  1. Hi, Connie! I was checking out your darling Whoopsi Daisy girl (she is such a charmer), and immediately next to it is your photo of Molly, and they both just made me laugh! Molly and the precious gardener, they go together! LOL Even your blog header has me chuckling this morning! Laughter is the best medicine, right? I especially like your hand-doodled frame around the white panel, and your pretty colors. huggers, de
