How does your garden grow?

Morning peeps,
My card today should have depicted an answer to "How does your garden grow", which is the theme lovely  Dorcas has set for this week's Digital Pencil Too challenge. Well, I guess I don't have to be completely honest about my answer to that...lol. I'm far from being a gardening lover but I do love the fields full of flowers where my sister and I used to play from morning till nightfall when we were kids. Those were such happy times!
It wasn't hard to find a happy cheerful image for my card. There are plenty of them in Mo's store. I fell in love with this adorable Sunday Child from the moment I saw her. I am a Sunday child too and her attitude really reminds me of myself about 20 years ago. Well, why not make a card for myself...lol?
Well, enough blabbling, this is my card:



Recipe:
Stamp: Mo Manning- Sunday Child
Coloring medium: ProMarkers, chalks, Faber Castell pencils
Papers: My Mind's Eye
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon, charm from stash

I hope you like it and made your day a pinch brighter!

Hi Iulia,
What a beauty agian. The image is so cute. And your colored here so very wel. Love how you did the grass, and then the green background on the flower DP. Everything so well thought over. The two bows with flowers completes everything. Good luck with the challenges.

Oh Julia, Julia Julia! I am sucha fan of your work and this card just reminds me of all the reasons why. Even when you can't see much of the background papers you still put such time and attention into it, stitching and laying them out just so. And your coloring is awesome. Beautiful job! I’m so glad you could play with us at Mo’s this week!
Hugs,
Dorcas
