Well, normally I do not do "fresh-n-funky", but this image and these colors were chosen by a dear friend at work- and I love them! It was a stretch, and my friend was happy. I watercolored the image (like, a bazillion times!) and added Mini Blooms to frame up the girls. "Sweet Pea" is the nick name my friend calls her DD, who has these fab colors all over her room.
The inside sentiment reads "Behind you your memories, before you your dreams, around all who love you, within you all you need". I love what this says to "Sweet Pea" from her mom.
Thanks for looking!

A bazillion times, oh my, must have been hard to get it to stick to the card - tee hee. Hmmm, Rubber Romance, Romantic Rectangles, sounds like a match made in heaven. I have no doubt your co workers DD will love it. Who wouldn't love that image AND those rockin' polka dot blooms!!! Totally cute!!

These are very different colors for you but you rocked it girl! Love that sweet image and your watercoloring looks wonderful! My favorite part are all of those glorious blooms!! You made those, didn't you? I knew it! Love the blingy jewelry on your two sweet peas! Darling card, and I am SURE your coworker's daughter loved it. I am with Gingerbeary....you could do ANY style!

You stretch so wonderfully, sweetie;))) Now, if only the body would stretch as well as the mind;)!! This is adorable; surely you could've achieved the same effect with only a million watercolor applications, non????? What a treasure--both you and your lil' masterpiece. Sweet Pea's mom knows just where to go for just what she needs....

Well, just dig out those RR images and you can do anything that anyone throws at you - right down the line - great colors, just not your comfort zone, but you sure did an awesome job with them - Sweet Pea is going to get a kick out of the bling - love those colorful blooms you made. Love that everyone in work comes to you when they need something SPECIAL - cause you DELIVER!!
