Card For a Couple of Challenges

Good afternoon! Happy 4th of July to those who are celebrating the holiday!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend no matter what you were doing!  It's been super busy for me so I'm dropping in quickly to share a card I made for a couple of my favorite challenges.  I haven't been able to play much lately because of my huge computer issues and life, in general, taking precedence over card-making, but I managed to find a little time this afternoon and decided to play.

My card is for this week's Mo's DP challenge #89, where our hostess, Lisa, challenged us to make a card based on a book or a story.  My card is also for this week's Just Us Girls challenge (JUGS91) which was a sketch challenge from Kathryn. 

Here is the JUGS sketch:

Here is my card for both challenges:

I started with a card base of Papertrey Aqua Mist and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Hazel 6x6 pad.  My image is Prince Edward Island from Mo's Digital Pencil. This cute image is reminiscent of Anne of Green Gables with her carpet bag.  That was my story inspiration.  She's colored with Copic markers, of course.  I used Liquid Pearls to accent the Spellbinders Scallop Circle frame. A satin bow, some buttons and a crocheted flower finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I so appreciate when you do!  Have a great evening!
