Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge.....

Good Morning!
Hope your all well!

When I was looking for some challenges
last week I stumbled across this one
and it looks like it is the first one.
I have had this image from SCACD
and needed to make a birthday
card with it and luckily this challenge
accepts the image! (I just had
to flip the sketch so my flowers
fit in better and didn't cover anything)

This is for a little girl in Lauren's class but
I think I am going to have a hard time
getting it to her as Kelsey just adores
horses and she keeps begging me for this!! LOL
(These girls make me feel like I know
 what I am doing LOL)

Anyways I have used some paper from
Kaiser Crafts, along with Kraft CS.
Again I have used some distress paint and
pearls. (Kaiser crafts as well) The
flowers are a mix of Prima and
Wild Orchid Crafts. Image was colored with
distress inks and twinkling h20's.

Well today is finally a sunny day so the
girls and I are headed outside and then
to Rita's for some Italian Ice after
lunch. They have been begging but
I can't see standing out in the cold and
rain eating the stuff!

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope
you all enjoy your day!!
