Skip a Beat

After three days of Christmas cards I've skipped right into summer with this one...pardon the pun, but I just could not resist that one!
Pin It

When I saw the Splitcoast sketch SC369 last week I knew it was perfect for Pure Innocence Jump for Joy from MFT.

I pulled out my October Afternoon Sidewalks patterned papers because the colours are just perfect for summer, and I set to work paper piecing her dress. I coloured the rest of her with copic markers...still working on the hair but I'm really liking the result today! I needed to "ground" her a little and I thought the fresh cut grass Die-namics was a good choice, so I cut it out of sour apple felt.

I needed a little space for the sentiment so I stamped it on the ticket tab Die-namics and tucked it under the image panel. You know when a card just makes you smile? Well this one does that for me. :-)

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
