Picked Flowers

This is the card I have made for the current challenge over at A Day for Daisies, the theme is monochrome.  I bought this adorable image a couple of weeks ago - she is just so gorgeous.


I apologise for the poor photo quality, I'm still struggling with my son's camera, I will be so pleased when hubby gets back from India with the one I usually use.

I have coloured her with pale blue ProMarkers to match my Papermania papers and made a paper bow with a fabulous little die from Lil' Inker Designs.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, I added some gems to the corners and some stickles to the flowers in her hair.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Day for Daisies Challenge 78 - Monochrome
Seemacrafts September Challenge - Monochromatic
Come and Get It Challenge - Focal Image on the Side
PanPastel Challenge 37 - Make it Blue
Bunny Zoe's September Challenge - Something Blue
Stamp and Create September Challenge - Birthdays
A Creative Romance Challenge - Dies or Punches (bow die)
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 286 - Hip to be Square

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is most welcome.
