Polka Dot Pals Katie

Did you check out the surprise over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps?  There's a FREEBIE available today so you don't want to miss out on that.  It's even an image from the Polka Dot Pals line and perfect for this time of year.  :D  I didn't have time to make a sample with the freebie but I have another Polka Dot Pal to show today.  This one is Katie!

The image I used is Polka Dot Pals Katie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and I colored her face with a bright-eyed expression.  I recently met a little baby boy that had the brightest blue eyes ever and thought that would be fun to color.  And to help them be the brightest they can be, I chose only use blue on the eyes.

There are a few things on there that I don't normally use so here's the run down... the chipboard embellishment is typically on my projects but this time I colored it with my Copic markers to match the grass colors and pull the green out.  Then I also tried to use Flowersoft as part of the ground cover but I can never get hang of it.  So I brushed off as much as possible then started adding little flowers to fill in.

I'd like to enter this into the following "Animals" or "Bugs" themed challenges:
