While Margaret is exhausting herself teaching an intensive weeklong college course, I am baking in the summer drought.  Once again, we were above 100 degrees, of course with high humidity.  I don't want to do anything!  I do have a card which makes me dream of faraway, cooler places!!!

This is a lovely image from Lili of the Valley.  I actually got out my Prismas for this one because of all the detail and my uncertainty that I could manage the little itty bitty details with my Copics.  I actually had fun with the Prismas and plan to use them again soon!  The dp is Basic Grey Gypsy and cs is DCWV.  Ribbon is from Papertrey and I used my Bow-Ez to make the bow.  Nesties were used to cut out the image and SU! punches for the sentiment, which came with the image.  The sketch for this card is from The Sweet Stop, don't you love it? 

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Tuesday Alchemy - Bingo (ribbon/bows/flowers/bling).

Thanks for stopping by!
