A Summertime image from Sherri Baldy-Butterflies and Hearts!

It's a great time to try something new and this big-eyed beauty is just the ticket!  This is an Image(img510) from Sherri Baldy that I decided to color in some yummy summertime colors.  I tried a different effect on her bonnet, using a cross-hatch stroke on the top and brim so that it would make it look like it was woven. 
A favorite color combination for this time of year is Pink and green-so fresh!  I used a wood grain background that brought out the yellows in the card.   It even had flecks of green in it.  Micro dot mat in green with stitched ribbon on the corners helped to bring out the green in her huge big eyes! The image is accented with a butterfly on her hat, clustered mulberry flowers and branches in the corner and a whimsical butterfly die cut on the front edge.
On the inside liner, more accents and a Happy Birthday stamp!  You can never have enough of those cards right?!
Thanks for visiting and while you're at it take a look at the latest Sherri Baldy Challenge !  See you there!
