Vintage Garden

(To see the card I posted earlier today for Kirsty's Birthday Blog Hop click here.)
     This image is the last in a set of three I purchased from A Day For Daisies a while back.  I dug out my BG Curio 6x6 pad for the papers and the little flower girl is colored with Copics.
     This project is another one of my "when the mood strikes" cards.  They seem to come late at night. *sigh*  But I sure have fun while I'm making them.
     It was also fun just to play and make a card for no reason but that I wanted to.  Hope you like it.
     I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Phindy's Place--summer living
Simply Create--special day/event
Stamp Something--use a sentiment
The Outlawz Copic Challenge--anything goes
Deconstructed Sketches--sketch
Southern Girls--lace and pearls
Divas by Design--one for the girls
House that Stamps Built--stitching
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge--here comes summer
Color Throwdown--color palette
Bearly Mine--die cuts and lace
Claudia and Company--birthday for a girl
Going Grey with Scrap Creations--use at least 3 different DP's

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
