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.
Faith is believing that God is present, when all we hear is silence.
It's not who we are, but Whose we are.
