Well this picture is teeny tiny, lol.  It's the Guest Design sketch from MFT's.  I saw this and had a few ideas, so I think I will be entering more than once this time, lol. 

This is the Photo Inspiration from Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week, and since I won last weeks Challenge, I wanted to be sure to make a card using this picture and these colors as soon as I could.  Any ol' excuse I have to make a card will do, lol.  I can't possibly do housework, I HAVE to make a card. lol.  

So with the sketch and the inspirational picture I came up with this.

I love this new Aloha Pure Innocence gal from MFT's.  I also used the branch die from the branch and leaf die-namic, (MFT) as well as the new leaf die-namics (MFT's) .

I colored the image with my copics: E21, E000, E0000, E00, E37, E35, E33, E31, YOO, R22, R21, R20, YG21 and outlined her BG10.  Then I fussy cut her out and glued her down to my Echo Park, Paradise Beach paper.  I LOVE this paper!  I used some card stock from Stampin' Up and added some brads to the corners. 

Winning a guest design team spot for a month would be a dream come true.  I'll keep my fingers crossed and get busy on the next card, lol. 

I did get a text yesterday......but it's a secret for next month.....guess you will just have to follow along with me to find out what the secret is.....lol.

Thanks for Looking and for your wonderful Comments.
