Stamps R Us Challenge – “There Was A Little Girl”!

Happy Monday everyone, and I hope you are ready for another great challenge with us at Stamps R Us!  Our sponsor is A Day For Daisies digital stamps, and she very generously gave the DT’s some images to work with.  I hope you will check out the store, there are lots of amazing digitals to chose from. We also have a generous prize for one lucky person. 

Now the theme for this week is “There Was A Little Girl”, so we want to see cards/projects featuring little girls.  How easy is that! 

                  A Special Flower

I’m use the adorable image called “A Special Flower”.  I colored the hair and skin with copics, then paper pieced the dress.  I cut the arms away from the paper, so that I could slip the dress underneath, and it also gives the arms some depth.  I also paper pieced the flowers.  I used foam dots to pop up the flower in her hand, then added a curly “Q”.

I made the large flower with the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies.  The pink cardstock is embossed with a folder from Sizzix.  Designer paper is by Lucy Bird.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.
