Hello sunshine...

Hey there!

It's the second Wednesday of the new month and that means it's time for the April 'anything goes' challenge over on the 7 Kids challenge blog. Playing along is easy, all you have to do is use at least one product that can be found in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and link back to the challenge blog in your own post, which gives you a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate at the end of the month... who doesn't love that?
For my challenge inspiration card I just had to ink up this new beauty from Whimsy Stamps called Flower Gardener. These portrait style stamps are wonderful for practicing my no-line coloring because they make it easy to really pay attention to all the little details of the image. With spring finally having officially sprung I wanted this pretty girl to be decked out in happy shades of yellow and pink and I actually colored her outfit before her hair which is not my usual process. I'm glad I did though because once I settled on black hair to add some high contrast, if I had done this same hair first there is a 99% likelihood that I would have accidentally pulled black into the yellow. As it is, luck was with me and I adore how she turned out all dressed up in her Easter bonnet.
Alrighty, I hope to see some of my crafty friends joining the fun with me this month over at 7 Kids!   :)
