Have a bright, sunshiney day!

Hello! Today's card uses a cute image that I haven't inked up in a while. The little girl is a Swiss Pixie from C.C. Designs. She's sitting outside on a glorious summer day, just like today!

The first challenge that I used for this card was the JUGS Challenge to use the woodgrain technique. I haven't tried this before, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. My Swiss Pixie is sitting on a wooden fence made using this technique. If you haven't used this technique before, they have a great link to a tutorial on the JUGS website.

My second challenge is the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This week's challenge is a tic-tac-toe challenge that you can check out on their website. I picked the middle row and used ribbon, die cuts and felt. The sun is die cut from felt and the clouds are die cut from white cardstock. This was my second attempt at a card for this challenge. I hope that you like it!!

Happy Days!
