Elodie in Her Garden

Hello, my friends! Here is a card that I made for the sketch challenge over at the Stampavie Design Team Blog.


I used the adorable Elodie in Her Garden illustrated by Sarah Kay for my card. I think she is very pretty.


In the stamp, Elodie wasn't really watering anything, so I added a little patch of flowers for her using my Copics. I adore many of Sarah Kay's stamps and have a couple of them colored. I am just hoping that I'll keep making the deadlines of the challenges so that I can show them to you! =)


I paired her with October Afternoon's lovely Fly A Kite collection. The sentiment is from Nina Brackett's Heartily Yours Additions set.

That's all I have for today! Hope your day is fabulous! =)
