7 Kids College Fund Challenge - "April Showers Bring May Flowers"

There's a new challenge for you to tackle on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog!  
The theme for  the next two weeks is "April showers bring may flowers"
So, ink up some springtime image and show us what you've got!  

I am playing along with Stampavie's "Julia in the Field by Sarah Kay."  

Once I colored this image, didn't want to add the patterned paper that I had chosen.  I thought she looked so pretty as is that I didn't want to distract from the image in any way.  I stamped the image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card and colored her with copics.  I used a white gel pen to add the polka dots to her hair bow.  I ran a white panel through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder and then rounded the corners of the card base.   

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
