"Wish You Were Here"


I just love this image from "Sugar Nellies". She reminds me of many fun times I had as a child fishing with my family. Yes, I was a tomboy and in some ways I still am! I colored my image with Copics (of course) and sponged in a golden yellow, I mounted the image on a scrap of  deep chocolate brown.  I used my SU punch for the golden yellow border and used scrap dp from my scrap box. I will never get all my scraps used up! I also added three pearls on the three strips of dp. I add a felt sunflower I found at Hobby Lobby. I am entering this card at http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ and http://www.letsinkitup.com/ Blessings to each of you!
