Hi! Guess after todays festivities I could not sleep so stayed up and did todays inspiration challenge. Stephanie sent us to Posh Tots. So many cool things to choose from! This is what I chose ~ http://www.poshtots.com/Decor/Wall-A...uctDetail.aspx
I drew the picture lightly on watercolor paper then used aquacolor water pencils and an aquabrush to paint the scene. I did the best I could as I am no artist. Then I went over it with a marker. I changed the colors somewhat to match what colors I had. Matted it and popped it up, added ribbon and a button. Thanks for looking and have a great day! I will leave comments tomorrow evening as we are going out tomorrow with our kids.Thanks Steph for a great site! More deets on my blog ~http://paper-rose-petals.blogspot.com/

So sweet and pretty, I love the soft spring feel to this.
Glad you mentioned the watercolour paper and colouring - I have the PB Mice Day stamp on my desk ready to put away, but I was going to stamp a couple of images and send them to you. Would you prefer watercolour paper or plain white card? Or a couple of each?
Hope you had a great day yesterday.

This card creation of yours is just wonderful......I can't believe you drew this free handedly........I'm so impressed....If you can draw so nicely, you should start your own stamp company.......seriously!!!! tfs
