My Ada in our garden

As promised, here's the 'positive' image to the silhouette of Ada in a previous post. I've made it up in sunny yellows, for the Trimcraft Colour Challenge and with the Gingersnaps Challenge in mind, I've attached a DCWV quote which I feel covers the mood of my card. However, I was too darn late - their challenge closed yesterday.......(sigh). Never mind, I enjoyed making it anyway! LOL!

It's a middle-opening 21cm squ white card with a facing of a K&Co yellow paper.
The image mat is a yellow nestie, laid on a flowered white card from a pad from stash which is in turn matted onto a sunny-yellow Bazzil Bling.
The flowers are a mix of Prima and Poundland and the whole is finished off with Lemon Ice Stickles and a lovely yellow satin ribbon.

I've kept is fairly simple, the better to show off my Copics-coloured image which is my drawing of my baby granddaughter Ada from the week before last ( ...when we had Summer...!) and the quote is from DCWV.
Oh, and the inner (which you can just see peeking over the top edge) is edged with Martha Stewart deep border punch.

I hope you all like it!
