Make It Monday #111 with Meljen's Designs

Another week has flown by and now it's time for another linky party at Make It Monday. Congrats to our winner and to those chosen by the DT as their Pick of the Week. It is so much fun to look through the gallery and see so many amazing creations linked up. Thank You! I would also like to thank our current sponsor, Meljen's Designs, for providing the design team with images to work with. I love the variety of digi images in Melissa's online store so if you haven't shopped there yet be sure to check it out and see what you are missing. :)

My card features the adorable digi image, A Girl and Her Overalls, and it is one of my fave's. She's holding a picked flower behind her back which reminded me of my daughter when she was a little girl. She'd pick a flower for me and say "just for you" mommy so naturally I couldn't resist this image nor the sentiment by Waltzingmouse Stamps. ;) I colored her in Copics, used a red atyou Spica pen on the hearts and created my blue background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Four pearl brads by American Crafts anchor my colored image to an embossed yellow panel that was created using a Taylored Expressions's Hearts Impression Plate. Red grosgrain ribbon adds a bit of color underneath and I added a red button tied with a red burlap bow also. The perimeter of my base was faux stitched using a fine point Sharpie pen and to finish I stamped my sentiment in Memento Paris Dusk, chomped the corners on my sentiment & yellow  embossed panel and called it good. I really wanted to make this image stand out and I thought this sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday would help me do that. Here's a close up of this sweet little gal.

As for my POTW I chose #156  by Lucy Patrick and her Fairy Garden card. Is it ever adorable!!! I fell in love with the bright colors, birthday banner, and the whimsical touches she added. Be sure to visit Lucy's blog to see more photos and learn how she created this enchanting 3D card.
