Michelle Perkett Challenge #41 - Anything Goes!!

Good morning all!  I am so excited to announce that I made the DT call for Michelle Perkett Studio.  I love her stamps, there is something for everyone!  There is also a challenge posted every Tuesday, and you can find it posted  HERE, I hope you will join in the fun, and for an added bonus, you get a chance to win a $10.00 shopping spree at Michelle's etsy store!

This weeks challenge is "Anything Goes", you can make any kind of project or card, as long as you use one of Michelle's stamps.  I really threw this card together in a hurry.  I have been busy all day, along with getting things going with my new DT job, I also have my daughter coming home on Wednesday, and I am "over the hill" excited to see her, it has been way too long! 

I think she turned out pretty cute!  This is the lovely Mary Margaret stamp.  She is a freebie offered on the PCP group.  I think she is already to start school.  I love this sentiment from Create With TLC, is it the apple that's sweet, or the little girl!
The lovely pink background was cut with the Spring Collection Cricut cartridge.  I added some glass gems on some of the flowers, and some green pearls in the corners.
I paper pieced the whole image, except for hair and skin.  I used 3D pop dots on the pink sleeves, and the apple, so they would stand out a bit from the dress. 
The roses are some I made, using the same paper that I used to layer the image and sentiment on.  I glazed the flowers, to harden them and make them shiny.
Well, that's my card for this week,  thanks for coming by.  I look forward to seeing all your entries for the first challenge with the new DT group.  Have a great day!
