May the sun shine all day long...

I recently bought this cute Mo Manning image ( her name is April) and had a little time to color today, so I decided to play along in this week's Digital Pencil Too challenge. The theme this week is Pastel Colors, so I colored the image with pastel shades.

The whole image has been cut out, to make it work with the sketch I had in mind. The sentiment is from one of the new sentiment sets by Whimsy Stamps - Birthday Greetings. I kept the card pretty simple, just added some ribbon and a diecut flower and flourish. the flower was made using one of the flower dies from MFT, the flourish was made with one of Whimsy's leafy corner dies.

Products used:
Stamps: April digi (Mo Manning), Birthday Greetings (whimsy stamps)
Papers: my Minds Eye, Stampin Up, Neenha
Tools: Leafy Corner Dies , Flower trio die set (MFT), Faber Castell Polychromos pencils
Embellishments: ribbon, brad, stickles glitter

Besides Mo's Digital Challenge, I am also entering my card to a few other challenges. Die cuts and punches at Stampin' For The Weekend , anything goes at Crafty Ribbons, pastels at DRSDesigns, use a sentiment at Paper Crafting Journey, Spring at Creative Belli, anything goes at Simon Says Stamp,  and birthdays at Digital Tuesday .

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some crafty time and lots of sunshine!
