Have Enough to Juggle?

     I clearly remember those days of being a working Mom and homemaker, a college student, and a wife, and trying to keep all the balls in the air without dropping anything.  This darling little tiger by Gerda Steiner brought back many of those memories.  :-D  The image is this month's freebie offered to all who play in the Progressive Challenge at The Outlawz.

     The image is colored with my ProMarkers and, although it looks die cut, this time it's the black  CS that's actually die cut.  That was a leftover negative from another project and I put it on top of the image, and then used a plain circle die to cut both of them.

     I layered those onto a pale orange card base, added sheer ribbon, and then adhered the matted sentiment.  I used two of my hand-sewn bows and called it finished.
