Ava's Outside!

Hi all! I'm back with "Ava" again, a sweet image  from Saturated Canary. I am so happy with how her hair turned out! I didn't have an outdoors-y digi, so I put Ava outdoors. I sponged the background using Distress inks and a little paper cloud stencil I made. It looks good for my first attempt! The grass is done with my Bic markers, so it's not as nicely tapered like it would be with Copics. Clothes are done with Bics, also.

 A close up of my fabulous hair job;)
I put glitter glue on the edges of the flower petals to go with the glitter on the DCWV paper. I used an older sketch from Graphicat Sketches (sketch 4).

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Saturated Canary (the great outdoors)
Designed to Color ( Scene it)
Color Me Creative (Create a background)
Crafty Ribbon Challenge (Spots and Dots)
Graphicat (Sketch 4)
