California Girls


I do love the Krista Smith images. This is a fun little image is called "California Girl". She is perfect for a summer card or for those who are dreaming of warm weather. I used some odds and ends to make this card. Scraps from my never ending scrap box, a bit of seam binding, some left over flowers and a heart charm. Just a fun little card and a little time of play in my craft room.
My Song: (Beach Boys)
Well east coast girls are hip, I really dig those styles they wear
And the southern girls and the way they talk,  they knock me out when I'm down there.
The mid-west farmers daughters really make you feel alright
And the northern girls and the way they kiss, they keep their boyfriends warm at night
I wish they all could be California girls!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

Super fun card just made for summer !!! You've colored her wonderfully & I love how you can get the pink in her cheeks to blend so nice. Do you use Copics for the blush or is that chalk. Whatever it is it looks great.
Hugs, Janie
