Sunny Birthday

      I'm thrilled to have been invited to be a Guest Designer in the fortnightly challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty.  Our marvelous sponsor is Colour of Love and I used this Sunflower Kokeshi Doll image provided by Heather.  I'm using this as a birthday card for a dear friend.

     I colored the image with ProMarkers and water color pencils.  The image and the black frame for it are both cut with QuicKutz rectangle dies.  I used peachy/pumpkin colored CS for the background and wrapped it with white lace.  I found a small scrap of satin ribbon, 'dyed' it peach with a marker, and tied a simple, knotted bow.  The sentiment was printed and fussy cut.

Inspiration Station (inspired by the colors)

     It would be wonderful to see you entering the Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge this time around and their theme is always "Anything Goes."  Come play!  NanaConnie
