CC210 On my mind!

Hello everyone! Today is color challenge day over on SCS. Use riding hood red, summer sun and kraft. I hardly ever use summer sun or kraft and I didn't know how my project will come out, but I am pretty happy with the turnout. The sketch was inspired by this weeks mojo monday sketch, but I changed it a little bit.
Image was printed at wallet size on Georgia Pacific 110lb card stock from walmart and colored using prisma and copic markers. A little bit of stickles was applied to the flowers in the image and the grass. The flower embellishments were made with SU's retired spring bouquet punch, and white paper flowers.

Recipe:
Image is from the Digital Stamp Oasis, sentiment from Upsy daisy set (SU)
Ink: HP inkjet, memento tuxedo black
Paper: summer sun, kraft, riding hood red, white gp, SU designer paper
Accessories: lace border punch, black gingham ribbon, spring bouquet punch, paper flowers, brads, paper piercing tool kit, stickles, alcohol markers.

Hi Ellie,
Love your cute image and wonderful design.. I bought your adorable Susie Squirrel image and am having trouble with my card stock jamming in my HP printer. Can you tell me what kind of printer you use?
Thanks,
Pat
