Another Card for the week! WOO HOO!!!

Hello All,
I'm so excited. It's only Monday and I have made a second card for the week (and managed to go to work all day, cook dinner, AND do a load of laundry!!). I'm on a roll!!!
Okay, so this card was started last night. I THOUGHT I was going to do another Christmas card BUT when I was going through my file of Phindy images that I have printed out (sadly I'm out of black ink), I found this little cutie. She was all printed out and ready to be paper pieced. The digital papers are from Summer Driggs (unfortunately I can't remember the name of the paper pack). I used some thin green ribbon that just happened to go perfectly with the DP. I made the flowers with a SU punch and wooden buttons that I "colored" with ink refill.
This card fits the following challenges:
  • Phindy's Place Challenge Blog: Sketch - okay, I left out the sentiment on this one but it just didn't seem to "fit" with the size of the card so instead I lowered it and turned it from a sentiment into a bow!
  • Angel Creative Updates: Flowers in the Snow - you must use at least 2 different kinds of flowers in your project. I used flowered DP for the background paper, the image has flowers on the bonnet and the flower in her chubby little hand, AND I made the flower embellies!
  • Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge: Photo Inspiration - I went with the flower/summery feel of this photo! Oh, it really makes me want this snow to go away (though, instead we're supposed to get up to 30 more inches!).
Hope you enjoy this card with Phindy's little Summer Cutie as much as I enjoyed making it!
