And this is my DT card that I made, using Deedee's image called Sunflowers and Sunshine:

I coloured the image using my coloured pencils and OMS, and cut it out. Two oval diecuts (using Nellies Choice dies), the purple one coloured using Lindy's Moon Shadow Mist and Starburst Spray, and the other in orange batik paper, were used as the sketch ovals. The background paper was also coloured using a Lindy's product, Starburst Spray and the corners were punched. As embellishments I used the gorgeous sunflowers - oh wow I love them!

I think I achieved a really happy look with this card, and using the wonderful MMSC#95 sketch certainly helped me achieve that!
