Wlid Flower Patch Summer Preview


Hello And Happy Tuesday!

My family and I took a mini vacation to Grand Rapids for my granddaughters Graduation Open House Party and we had a great time. The weather was HOT and humid and cooking in the kitchen and decorating the house made things even hotter. I don't have any pictures to share but at the end of the day, my granddaughter Kia's Open House was a success and everyone had a wonderful time.


However, starting the week on a positive note, I do have a card to share today. The Wild Flower Patch Design Team is showcasing the new summer digi images and they are adorable! The name of my image is Sandcastle Violet and Violet is the poster child for summertime fun!

Violet is colored in with Copic Markers and the sky background was lightly background. To give the sand a sparkling effect, I add gold and diamond Sparkles to highlight. Other embellishments are lace, button and half pearls.

Jen (the illustrator and owner of The Wild Flower Patch) has designed some of the cutest new images and you really don't want to miss out on the this sneak peak. Be sure to stop by the WFP DT and check out the new WFP sneak peaks.
