In My Thoughts

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope you are having a good week so far!  We're halfway to the weekend!  Got to love that thought!  Anyway, I am here this morning to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing.  I somehow managed to get this one done in between my DT work.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Gumball Green and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Country Garden 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Sunflower Sprite from Aurora Wings.  Mitzi generously shared it as a freebie for the current sprite challenge on the blog.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I used the Birds on a Wire metal die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps as a banner at the top. Some eyelet lace (Webster's Pages trim), flowers with buttons and a few pearls finished up my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a couple of appointments this morning, so I'll be around to visit this afternoon.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge #5 (sprite delight)
Hobbycutz Challenge #59 (sketch challenge)
Crafting From the Heart Challenge #30 (anything goes)
Tuesday Throwdown #207 (mellow yellow)

Here is the sketch:

Have a great day and see you soon!
