Lace and Handmade Flowers

This week it's the Sassy Cathy's turn to set the challenge on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog, and as usual, I'm the last minute getting my card done. The challenges start each Tuesday, and the winner each week wins not one, but two Sassy Cheryls Images, and you really need to check out her new images. They're quite nostalgic.

For my card, I used this image called Charlie's Green Umbrella. I do love Charlie.  I've colored here with both PrismaColor and Faber-Castell pencils.

Thanks to the Sassy Judy for the help in making sure that I had the flower and circle punches.

The sentiment was typed straight onto the background paper.

Both the lace background and the umbrella paper are from the Silhouette America online store. The other background papers are from Just So Scrappy 2's digital kit Serenity.

Best get this ditty posted and entered before time is up.
