Hello everyone!   It's Wednesday and I just finished my work week.  I am now getting ready to pack for CHA! YAAA!    What a way to spend a week off!   It rates up there in my book as a 10! :D 

This is  my Design Team card for our MarkerPop Challenge #2 for this week.   the challenge is "Pastels".   I used a rubber stamp image from Swiss Pixies at  CC Designs called sunFlower Lula 
Isn't she just the cutest little thing?    I has some whimsical fun on her hat and dress with my multicolored Copic pen.    I sketched a sunflower the size that would fit into the bottom of my card.  
A little paper piecing and popped it into the corner!

Hair c3, C5, C7, Copic Opaque White
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress: G40, G44, G46, W3, Colorless Blender and 0.3 mm Copic Multiliner - Gray

I am linking these cars in the following challenges

I sketched the sunflower and leaves.  and then paper pieced the flower.   It is fun to try to sketch and coordinate corner embellishments to match your images :D
