Appreciation

Hello!  Happy Hump Day!  We'll be cruising to the weekend now!  I'm popping in to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.  It is for this week's Whoopsi Daisy Challenge (a sketch challenge) and Craft Your Passion #104 (use dots and stripes).

Here is the Whoopsi Daisy sketch:


And here is my card:


I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with striped patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Miss Nelly 6.5 x 6.5 pad.  I used a dotted patterned paper from the same pad for my middle panel.  It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the middle panel has both large and small dots on it.  For my main image, I merged two Whoopsi Daisy images, the gate (a freebie Linnie shared for challenge #6) andone of the cute little girls from Sheet 330.  I printed the merged image onto Cryogen White and colored with my Copics.  I added tiny dots of White Opal Liquid Pearls to the flower centers.  My sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  It was one that Paulette generously shared as a freebie awhile back.  I added a butterfly I punched with my Martha Stewart punch.  Some wide pink crocheted lace and three Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for this week's Mo's DP2 Challenge.  Hope to see you soon.
