Lazy Days

Susana's store has a new line of Victoria Case stamps for summer and are they ever cute. I just had to try them out - well one just now but there are so many you are just going to flip over them. Check them out here. Here is the card I made using the lazy days stamp.

It looks like a pretty simple card but I spent the longest time trying to figure out how to place the dp. I cut it wrong and then didn't want to cut any more so I played and played trying to get it just the way I wanted it. Don't know if you notice but there are two shades of the blue and two shades of the red (double sided paper). The little girl is colored all in copics. There is a touch of stickles on the flowers, shirt trim and sandals. The red dew drops are from robin's nest and the pearls are from embellashments which can be gotten at Susana's store also. The heart doily is something I got at the see spot save section of Target quite a while ago. 
skin - E00, E11, E31 (this combo made her skin a little darker than I usually do but I thought she looked like she needed a bit of a tan - but not too much as that can cause skin cancer.)
checks - R20
blouse - R37,  R35, R22, R00
jeans - B91, B95, B97
hair - E77, E57, E31, YR31
hat - Y00, E53, YR20, 0
leaves - G14
flower centers - Y17

Hope you enjoy her.
I made her for a challenge over at follow your heart blog. It is supposed to be an invitation but I didn't really but any invites on this but the optional challenge was for red, white and blue which I did. lol
