Itsy-Bitzy, Teenie-Weenie...


You know where this is going right? The theme over on the Totally Gorjuss Challenge is
Something Yellow which got me going and I have been humming this song off and on all day!

I thought that I would stop by and show you the card that I finished off this morning.

I have been seeing so many cards using this gorgeous Cali Girl from Saturated Canary that I just had to give it a go myself. I really focused on her hair this time around as that really is what seems to bring this image to life. In the end she looks just like me. Ha ha, yeah right! Although a week at the beach does sound nice. Too bad it's back to work tomorrow.


 I have coloured her to match with these gorgeous papers from MME that I got the other week.  I had been itching to use them ever since they arrived, they are perfect for all of my summer cards and this is a colour combo that I love so I am sure that you will be seeing more of them soon. An image as sunny as this one called for some summery flowers, so I dug into my stash and went into overload mode to finish it off.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
