Growing Up Too Fast

My grandchildren are growing up too fast.  It doesn't seem possible that another one has hit double digits.
As soon as I saw this digital image by The Paper Shelter, I knew I had to have it because I could see my granddaughter when I looked at it.  I am happy to color with my pencils until I need to color dark skin. Then they fail me.(Someday I will spring for Copics)  Because I have three grandchildren from Ghana, I need to take a class for coloring darker skin colors.
Anyway, I do like this card and I think she will too.  The sentiment is Verve.  Vine is CherryLynn.
I made the frame by putting a Spellbinders Labels One inside a Spellbinders Lacy Square before running it through the Cuttlebug.
The right edge of the card is torn and inked with some distress ink.

  1. Pretty card. Love the gentle image, she looks so nice and cool with her hair blowing in the breeze sitting under the tree (wish there was a breeze here!) I love how you have used two different spellies to frame the image, and the colours in the card are picked out perfectly in the image.

    Thanks for sharing with us
