Spring Flower Girl

Hello crafty friends! I was about to clean off my desk and realized I hadn't made very many Easter cards. I used my SU Easter Blossoms set to craft a card that could be used for general spring themes, or even Mother's Day. I love this little girl with her basket and thought the gems were a fun touch. A card just isn't complete without a little bling!
Sketch Inspiration ~ 365Cards Day 67 ~ Super Sunday Sketch
What a fun sketch from the brains at 365 Cards.
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #50 ~Mother’s Day or Girly Lots of girly options ~ lace, flowers, organza and BLING
Little Red Wagon Challenge #131 ~Stitch it Up I added a faux stitching border around the edge of my card.
365 Cards Day 19 ~ All the Trimmings use 3 diff types of trim I have 2 types of ribbon and 'trimmed' my image in lots of bling.
365 Cards Day 49 ~ Getting Inky find 2 uses for ink pad; I stamped my image in ink, and created clouds with a scalloped circle mask, a sponge and ink.
My Creation
Image Detail
To create the cloud background, I stamped my image on a sticky note and carefully cut it out (basic outline, not exact) to make a mask over the image. I punced out a scalloped circle and placed it over my mask. I used a sponge and an ink pad to ink around the top of the scalloped circle randomly moving it across the panel until I was happy with the cloud 'concentration'. LOL
