A Summer Garden

     The newest Progressive Challenge is on at The Outlawz and I got my entry finished this morning.  The image is from We Are 3.


     I colored with ProMarkers and water colors then cut the image with a plain square die from QuicKutz.  I inked the edges and added the sentiment. 

     The card front is dry embossed and I wrapped it with mesh fibers and sheer ribbon before adding the image piece, tipped on an angle.  The hand-sewn, satin bow was the final touch.

     Challenges:
Crafting from the Heart
Crafty Sentiments
Cute Card Thurs.
Cuttlebug Mania
Die Cuttin' Divas
I {heart} ProMarkers
Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Passion for ProMarkers
Penny's Paper-Crafty

     That's all I have for today.  Now I must concentrate on all those "must do" chores which have been on the list far too long.  The hot, hot, HOT weather is on it's way and I have to get outdoor and garden things prepared for it.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

What a fun image for coloring. The tilted mounting adds to the happy feeling you get looking at this. Another great entry you've shared with us for the PIP challenge.
