Designing DIVAS Challenge

It was my turn to host the March challenge for the Designing DIVAS blog group. Since March 2nd was the birthday of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day, I decided to make the challenge reading related. We could make anything inspired by a book, something featuring a book or reading image or make a bookmark. This challenge was great for me too since I am such a avid reader. I will probably do another project too, I need a bookmark. I make them all the time and give them away and then I end up using scraps of paper to mark my place! My card uses this adorable Magnolia image. I colored both the image and the quilt with Copic markers and then cut them out. While I was in Memphis this weekend I bought this Basic Grey pack of paper called Kioshi. The flower came from my LSS and I can't remember who made it.  Thanks for stopping by and visiting and if you want some more inspiration, check out the DIVA group on my sidebar.
