Omigoodness, do you know ANYONE who doesn't just LOVE Mo Manning's incredible artwork? This particular digi (Baby Fairy Puddle in the Spring) just gives me the giggles, so I sat down to try to do her justice with my very amateur Prismacolor/gamsol skills. I wasn't going for any particular color combo, so when she was finished I searched for some paper and embellies and found my digi set of Echo Park Summer Days was perfect. I love how you can enlarge or shrink the pattern of digi papers and only print out exactly the size you need for a card. I rather like how it all turned out and I have someone who loves frogs in mind whose birthday is almost here. I think she'll like it!
