Sprinkles

Mornin' folks!

I've got a quick card using what I have to say is my new most favorite Tiddly Inks image evah! This little cutie is an homage to and namesake of the amazing Donna and how can you not love her just as much as Miss Three Umbrellas herself?! She has such charm and tells such a great story... what can I say, she melts my heart a bit. :)

I couldn't resist coloring her up as I imagine Donna may have looked in her childhood days and it was so much fun creating a whole little scene for her to live in. Then I just grabbed a mix of October Afternoon paper scraps within my color scheme and finished it all off with, what I hope, is a clever sentiment for the image. Oh, and the little dots on the umbrella and down by her feet are tiny little gems that look kinda like raindrops when the light hits them... not so much in the photo unfortunately. Oh well, I hope I did Donna proud with this one! :)

Ok, so be sure to check back tomorrow when I will have a new Sweet November spotlight to share that will kick of sneak peeks and candies starting on Tuesday! Woot woot!
