Back to School

Good morning all! I made this little cutie for the ultra-mega talented Kadie's The Greeting Farm swap that she is hosting on SCS. I think there is still room and time to play. They are not due until September 25th. So if you interested please sign up. Kadie would love to have you. For this card I used The Greeting Farm's Annika from the Wild Sprouts line. The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday collection. The idea for the flower came from Miss Jacilynn. I'm always struggling to find the perfect color or style of flower to go with a card...it normal never happens so they get left off. What a great idea...make your own. I used my white Jelly roll pen to make faux criss-cross stitching on the band and colored up Miss Annika with copics. Oh and stickles was used for the hair clip. A girl has to have a little bling ya know! For this card I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #35. Now only 5 more to make. Have a great day!

Oh Mary you just won my heart when you used a TGF stamp for this sketch. They are my favorite stamps and you TOTALLY rocked the sketch. I love your coloring and that Cosmo Cricket paper is perfect with her. I ordered some of that same paper and I get it tomorrow. Woohoo!! You have so inspired me with this card. BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for playing along with us this week!! Hugs!
