Lollipop Girl

I've only been blogging since December so since this is my first summer entering challenges, I'm finding I love this season of cards!  I get to break out the bright colored markers.

The doily looks like sherbet, it wasn't intentional and didn't even notice until I posted the photo but I'm so happy with it the way it came out.

I used Sam's sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp #161:

And the colors were inspired by The Play Date Cafe #187:
