DP2 Challenge ~ Sketch

Hi Guys!
Today's card is unusual for me in that I'm using primary colors. Don't know what's got into me! lol
I think that the girl's shirt just spoke "farm" to me.
 (well it could have had something to do with the goats too! :-D)
Anyway, this is a card I made for my neighbor who has moved to a new home across town. Her pets, ie, four donkeys and two goats have stayed here until she can get a pen ready for them. So my daughter (who often has two braids) looks after the animals for her.
This image by Mo Manning  called "Saturday's Child" was perfect!

And speaking of Mo, this week's challenge at Mo's is a sketch. Head over to the DP2 challenge to get the exact sketch but it pretty much looks like this.
The only requirement (other than following the challenge theme or sketch) is of course, to use a Mo Manning image in your creation.
I have used prismacolors to color this and assorted scrap paper in making the card.
The sentiment is computer generated.




I hope you can get to play along!

Today will be  two post day so stay tuned for the Dutch Dare Challenge.
Thanks for coming by!

Really perfect for the occasion!
I had to smile, because the farm-girl-style looks pretty much the same here in Europe :-)
Nice card! The faux stitchiong is also a nice accent!
