Lazy Susan Buggies

Hello friends.  We have a new challenge this week over at the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  Our challenge this week is Graduation.  I'm sure we all need some graduation cards this time of year, so why not join in our challenge? 



While I definitely need to get some graduation cards made, I decided I'd work on those later as I've been wanting to color this image for so long.  This image is called Lazy Susan Buggies and I love this image.  I absolutely adore these daisies with the bumble bees and ladybugs.  I think it's one of my favorite Meljen's Designs images ... well, OK, I know I say that about all of them lol!  I colored with my copics and colored pencils and added some StarDust stickles to the bumble bees and tiny hearts.  I added a little Glossy Accents to the ladybugs.  I love the red and white combo.  I think it looks so crisp and summery.




Be sure you stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see what the talented DT members have come up with this week.  Pictured below is the latest Meljen's Designs release.  Aren't they perfect for your graduation cards?  I hope you are able to join in our challenge this week.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
