Chapter 14: Gettin' Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon

CHAPTER 14: Gettin' Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon...
"Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips,
and the sun is like a toy balloon.
There are get up in the morning glories,
in the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside,
strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions,
in the golden afternoon,
the golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead... "

Hey everyone!

I loved this sketch sooo much!! I also made this card for this weeks Dare to be Sassy Thursday #20! there challenge was distressing.....and hello distressing is my middle name LOL!! I used distress inks to colour my image and distressed the edges of the paper. The doily came in my TPS dt kit today, you can purchanse them from Tickled Pink Stamps. And the papers are October Afternoon report card. Seriously how SASSY and gorgeous is this image!! LOVE IT.
