Oopsy daisy

For the last couple of weeks I've been struggling a bit with my cards but now I have finally been inspired. I just love how this card turned out even if it took me three days to finish it, phew. I made it especially for the Kraftin' Kimmies GDT call. I've been waiting for an opportunity like this for many many months as I absolutely love the moonlight whispers line and would LOVE to be on the team. Chances like this don't come often and I just have to put my name in the hat. I have two cards left to finish by friday evening. Yikes! Don't ask me where february went, I'm blaming it on the fact that there are just 28 days in that month :D

I have used the adorable Eleanor from Kraftin' Kimmies and coloured her with my beloved promarkers. The challenge was to use 3 main colours, 2 patterned papers, 1 ribbon and 1 button. I used fushia, lime and orange as the main colours, the background paper is actually one sheet and the second patterned paper is the orange floral die cut. The ribbon and button are on her cap.

I wasn't sure if I should add the handwritten text, but I like adding funny sentiments to these stamps. The fact that she has a daisy in her hair makes it even more fun. A perfect card for a belated birthday, don't you think?

Challenges for this card:

Bunny Zoe's - spring; flowers everywhere
Colour create - fruits
Cute card thursday - signs of spring
Kraftin' Kimmies - recipe 
Papertake weekly - anything
Simon says stamp - recipe (not sure if diecuts count as an embellishment though)
