And it's also for Julia's Ways to Use It challenge from this last Thursday to use a child in our design.
This little sweetheart is by Rubbernecker and I watercolored her with Adirondack inks, except for her skin tone and shoes (used Copic markers), as well as the straps on her shoes and her necklace (I used Liquid Pearls).
I made this a gatefold card (you can find Beate's tutorial in the Resources section) for Gina's challenge on StampTV.
It's a beautiful, sunny and warm Saturday here, and I hope the sun is shining where you are, too! Blessings to you this Easter!

How adorable is she? What a fantastic gatefold card. I was insprired by Mutnik to do a gatefold card. It was fun.
Your image is just as cute as can be. I love the hat and the shoes on the wrong feet! Wonderful coloring and the black mulberry behind the image is just the perfect touch.
