Daring to keep this simple!

Time for another round of Whimisical Wednesday - The Diedrich Dare... How are all of you this midweek?! i trust you all had a fabulous long weekend...

it's time for another challenge here at the Dare and it's Nickolas' turn to dare you with his fabulous sketch.... so here's what he summoned for you today... DDSC#19....

I sure hope you are having tons of fun with the Dares from the Diedrich kiddies... i know i am... LOADS of it... so here is what i've done with Nickolas' sketch...

i've again used this beautiful Praying Madelyn from PMS that was generously given to us from Katie (PMS Owner)... Thank you again Katie!! this week i flipped the sketch and colored my image first... then i went to choose my papers... thankfully i still had some scraps to match my coloring... after putting the card together i got as far as adding the dew drops and then stopped... i really didn't want to cover up the sparkling DP... so with lots of fussing, i decided to keep it clean and simple... i really do believe the DP speaks for this card... but all in all, i really love it simple and you can see the sketch in such a clear picture... so, i apologize if it's a little too clean from my normal work but i do like this one the way it is and wouldn't change it otherwise...

hey, don't forget to visit the rest of the Daredevils and show them some love... i'm sure they have greatness waiting for you... it's just a click away... the links to the DT is on my sidebar... Kim is away with family and will not be joining us this week... Debbie and Valerie will join us as soon as they can... Don't forget to check out what Jacquie, our host this week, has for you on the Dare blog... and be sure to link up with Mr. Linky... if uploading to SCS/PCP/Gallery, please use keyword DDSC19...
