Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge

I have been wanting to play along in the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenges for a few weeks and keep running out of time to play along. I was happy I found a little time tonight to create a mini card.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:


I have been wanting to play with the beautiful Bloom and Grow set from Artistic Outpost again and decided to pull out the little girl and her wheelbarrow of flowers for the challenge.

I stamped, colored, distressed and embossed.  A few of my favorite things. :)   Also I was able to use some of my favorite Basic Grey paper from the Wisteria collection sent to me by the wonderful Donna! Thanks Donna!

I am hoping to play along in a few other challenges this week but have a few things on my plate to work on that I can't share. :)  So we will see how productive I am.. (Including folding multiple loads of laundry, yuck).

Hope you had a lovely Monday!
