Just Ducky!

     (Second post for today.  Please scroll down to see my DT card for A Day For Daisies this week)
     Is this image not adorable!  "Just Like Mom" is another image from this weeks new release from A Day For Daisies and I just couldn't pass up working with it on a card.  I thought it would make the cutest baby card, in this case for a girl, but it would work for either or when you don't know what it will be.  :-)  I used a sketch design from Bird is the Word that was meant for a layout and adapted it for my card.
     Hope you guys don't get tired of seeing a little cheescloth here and there cause I'm lovin' this stuff and it's on several upcoming projects I'll be posting.
     I'd like to enter this cute pair into the following challenges:

Forever Friends--anything goes (must include and animal)
Cooking It Up With Katie--bird, button, border
Crafts and Me--blue, green, and pink (the duck has blue chalking around it)
Craft Your Passion--double up with pink
The Ribbon Reel--color inspiration
Colors – Fall colors

Papers – Pattern paper, polka dots, crepe paper (fun!)
Stamps – Men, senior citizens, leaves and, okay, I'm gonna say it, bare bottoms (like, maybe, cute baby bottoms?)
Color Mediums – Copic markers, Glimmer Mist
Embellishments – lace, thread, buttons, tags, pearls, ribbon, seam binding, twine
Techniques – paper piecing, sewing, layer your buttons, make a bow bouquet (a bow with lots of layers and elements)
Tools – Die cuts, punches
Themes –masculine, Autumn/Fall and make us laugh!
Corrosive Challenge--flying things
I Did It Creations--if I could talk to the animals
