My first Saturated Canary card

I love Krista Smith's images and have several of the Simply Sassy girls but have only just bought some of her Saturated Canary digis available on Etsy. It took me ages to colour but I do love images that take a lot of colouring, one of my favourite pastimes. She has been coloured with Promarkers with touches of Sakura clearstar pen. The papers are last Summer's First Edition Desert Bloom which I distressed. I added some seam binding, Wild Orchid cherry blossom and MS punched leaves.

This is my DT card for Totally Gorjuss where there is a great sketch to follow this week. We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen so hop over and join in the fun. We all love a good sketch.
