Whimsy Stamps Guest Designer!

Good morning everyone!

I'm thrilled to share my card with you today because I was invited to be the Guest Designer for the August challenge at Whimsy Stamps! Thank you ladies! 

The challenge theme this month is... Back To School and my card features the fabulous Little Geek image- illustrated by Marika Collins... 
I colored her with Copics and boy did I have a hard time with her hair! I even did a little shading with Prisma Pencils and I just couldn't get the 'higlights/lowlights' to show up in the photo- but one good thing is that her hair color matches the brad in the center of the flower! LOL! Oh well... I had so much fun making this card and I love how it turned out... it's perfect for my niece who will be starting her freshman year of college soon! 

Well, that's all for now- thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to Whimsy Stamps to join the Back to School fun!
