Indian Summer?

 A closer look at the image.
 A closer look at the triple bow and daisy!
 A look at the fabric covered, wooden butterfly!
 The inside of my card!

I think this is one of my favorite "Wee" images. Although, I will admit that every time I use one I say it is my favorite. I love the sweet faces and find they are appropriate for all ages. Since I just wanted to color I have left the sentiment off this card and will stamp it later when I decide what I need it for. The DP is all from my scrap box and since it has glitter it was extremely difficult to photograph. I can't decide if it is because I have a cheap camera or I just plain lack skills in this area! I colored the image with Copics and added a bit of Spica pen to the gold on the head band for some sparkle. I would not have ordinarily combined kraft and grey together, but the striped DP had this color combination so I went with it! The wooden butterflies are from my stash. I loved them when I bought them several years ago but have never used them before this. I hope you enjoy this little card and you are enjoying the beginning of summer. Blessings!
I forgot to mention my bow! I am a follower of Gail at Lacey Lassy and her cards have the most beautiful bows! She has inspired me to "bow up"! LOL! So you can plan on seeing more bows in the future! Thanks Gail for all your encouragement!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: (The Cowsills) 
(Let's go to) Indian Lake
Is a scene you should make
With your little one
Keep it in mind
If you're looking to find
A place in the summer sun
Swim in the cove
Have a snack in the grove
Or you can rent a canoe
At Indian Lake
You'll be able to make
The way the Indians do
