Phindy's Place Challenge #57 - Summer Living

Good morning and welcome to a very summery posting for today's Phindy's Place Challenge.  DH has reminded me that this cannot possibly be summer as there doesn't seem to be a hosepipe ban in force.  This little girl would probably be hauled off into jail by Thames Water in real life!  This little cutie is called Splashy Sienna and I've challenged myself to make her a redhead, which I find tricky to colour in, I'm quite pleased with the result; her dress is paper pieced.  The DPs were magazine freebies, I've dry embossed the little squares.  The sentiment is LOTV and I've mounted it on a Prima flower, the big brads are Papermania I think.

My card is for the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch
Jac-Inks Papercrafts - warm colours
My Time to Craft - use a die cut
Truly Scrumptious - anything goes
Make it Colourful - colour a water scene
Crafting for All Seasons - anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - water, water
2 Sisters - use a digi
Sweet Stampin' - in the garden
StampsRUs - going digital
Squigglefly - paper piece your digi
