This is a stamp from Sheena Douglass, which has the sentiment Time Flies - very appropriate as I'm sending this with a late cheque for a workshop - oops!  Sheena mentioned how many people are reminded of themselves as a child by this image that she drew and I am yet another of them, the short thick hair and chubby legs, maybe it's the way all the babieswho are now of a certain age looked at that stage lol!
Anyhow, coloured with Copics, Distress Inks, Stickles on the dandelions.  The sketch is from Midnight Madness, I made the flowers with tiny punches and the DP is Basic Grey Marjolaine.
My card is for the following challenges:
By the Cute & Girly - springtime
Desert Island Crafters - I used  the following from their fun itinerary: 2. Inspired by Nature, 3. Handmade flower, 4. Hand colored image, 5.  2 or more patterned papers,  8. No sentiment on the front, 9. Distressing
Everybody Art Challenge - Spring
Try it out Tuesday - inspired by a sone - Dandelion by the Rolling Stones
Die Cut Dreams - Spring garden scene
Midnight Madness - sketch

  2. Just a gorgeous card, Anne. These are beautiful stamps aren't they and I agree that we are reminded of ourselves as children with them, I especially like the little girl picking flowers, I have definitely seen a photo very similar.
