Whiff of Joy Summer Stroll

Another favorite challenge for me is Whiff of Joy, which now is posted every two weeks.  I've been so far behind I've actually missed deadlines for this challenge!  Well, not this time!  Bev provided a wonderful sketch that looks great at any angle. 

I chose to rotate it one turn to the left for this image.

This is "Autumn Charlotte", but I colored her in Copics summery hues and left off the leaves.  (Click here to see the whole image which is great for fall!) The papers are actually from my scrap box and coincidently matched the image. I have a bad habit of coloring several images at a time without any specific dp in mind.  So I am really lucky when it all comes together!  The ribbon perfectly "tied" it all together, then I added some little silk flowers from the bridal dept. at Hobby Lobby.  I like looking for sales in the jewelry-making departments at craft stores, and that is where I found this gold butterfly.  The bottom edge of the top layer is a MS punch.

Charlotte is a lovely image for any time of year.  I'm sure she will appear again in the fall!

Thank you for stopping by today.  It's good to see everyone in the comments again!
