How Does Your Garden Grow?

Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Addicted to CAS#39 (anything goes as long as it's clean and simple).  I used an adorable digital image from this week's sponsor, called Pure Innocence - 017.  Isn't she sweet??!! :)

Heather has agreed to sponsor ATS&M for the month of April ... whoo-hoo!! :)

Stamps:  PI-017 (Heather Ellis), Watering Can Logos (C.C. Designs)
Paper:  White; Melon Mambo polka-dot, Crumb Cake plaid (retired) (SU!); Denim (unknown)
Ink:  Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Not Quite Navy (SU!); Copics: G43, E000, E00, E01, E44, E77, E49, YR24
Accessories & Tools:  1 3/8" circle punch, Pink Sorbet twine (The Twinery), Crystal Effects, Red chalk, white gel pen, glue, and adhesives

I colored in her face, hair and grass with Copics.  I used my Stampin' Write markers to color the two hearts and then added Crystal effects on top.  I paper pieced her top and jeans and then sponged a little on the jeans with Not Quite Navy ink.  I used chalk to give her rosy cheeks and a small white dot on each cheek as well.

I cropped the digital image for just the watering can and little bit of grass and added it to the inside of the card (paper pieced and colored the same as the front).

Here's a close-up of Pure Innocence:

I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!
