For my card, I used the Time for Walkies image.  I love these leggy girls Wendy designs... so cute and whimsical and I can only wish I was that thin!  I saw a similar layout on Pinterest awhile back and I wish I could remember whose card it was so I could give them credit.  I love the design and the clean, simple lines so therefore, there's not a lot to tell you except I coloured it with Copics and then sponged in some Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges.  The sentiment is computer generated and that one lonely enamel dot is from my stash.  It's funny but my simplest cards seem to take the longest... this was my third go at colouring this one.  The first was coloured too dark, the second one I made a terrible black smear which I couldn't get rid of so I guess third time's the charm!
 Now I guess your all desperate to see these new images. 
So, let's hop!!!
The first stop is our lovely Dressy Girl Nancy,  run on over to see her gorgeous creation then follow her link to the next Dressy Girl:)
In case you get lost along the way I'll add the other Dressy Girls in the hop order for you
As I said your first stop is Nancy

You are right marilyn, The simplest cards are the hardest, no where to hide. I've hid many a thing under a flower or ribbon.
But you have nailed this one perfectly xxx
