Stop and Smell the Flowers

I don't know why it is, but I really love images that are from the back. In fact one of my favorite photos is of my oldest and his cousin walking hand in hand taken from the back. A Day For Daisies has lots of images drawn from this angle. And I've bought several, so you'll be seeing more of them soon.

This image is called Flowers for Mommy. The challenge last Friday on the A Day For Daisies blog is #16 "Dots and Stripes". I really love both and could have gone either way, but decided on dots.

My sketch is the April sketch from Jen del Muro SFYTT. Another fun sketch this month.

And I'm also entering the Paper Sundaes #65 texture challenge.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope your week is starting off well.

Kathy, this is a darling image. I want it..and love how you colored her. Her hair is so pretty. I also like the back view of people for photos, but never thought of it for an image. Great card.
