Cheer up - my first DT card

Today I manages to finish my first DT card for Sweet pea stamps. I love the cute look on this girl's face and just had to make something bright and cheerful. I bought the patterned paper the other week and was itching to use it. I'm very pleased with it since I'm trying to develop my "busy cards" style. I think there is so much going on on this card, but I kind of like it.



I made this card after a sketch at sketch saturday. The little brads and ribbons in the right upper corner were perfect for the sketch.

There is also a great challenge at a spoon full of sugar. The theme this week has been "floral fantasy". Don't think it can get more floral than this, lol.

Last, but not least I used the challenge theme for the Simon says stamp
challege
"buttons and bows".

Do you see something different with my photos? I followed a tutorial on Kristine's blog on how to make blurry edges on your photos. I think it looks nice, but it would probably look even better if my blog had a white background.

Items used: promarkers; lime green, saffron, petrol blue, orange, berry red and an old pantone yellow, although you could use canary. Paper from DCWV.
