Flower Girl

I'm baaaack!! Sadly I missed last week's challenge at The Outlawz...I had to use a card from last year as I just couldn't get any free time to create a new project :(  We've had visitors, conference and more visitors over the last 2 weeks...not to mention still keeping up with the work stuff!!  I loved having the visitors and the conference was fun...but...I missed my creative time soooo much. I've been having withdrawals!! So it was very nice to sit and make something for this week's challenge...which is Grounding Your Image.

Here's what I came up with:

I've used Flower Girl from the Swings & Slides Set 2 available at Pollycraft. Isn't she sweet :)  I've given her a footpath , some grass and a sponged sky to ground her. The footpath was created by following a tutorial HERE by Amy R at Prairie Paper & Ink.

I also christened my new SU Ticket Punch...sent to me by a lovely Outlawz teamie friend, Maureen.  I've tried everywhere in Aus to buy one of these and they're just not available :(  I LOVE this punch...thanks sooo much Maureen...*waving* :)

AND....drum roll....I've PUT A FLOWER EMBELLIE ON MY CARD LOL!!  I'm not good with embellies...put them on and then usually take them off again!! Especially them on everyone else's cards but struggle to use them on mine!

Here's a close up of the lovely little flower girl:

I hope you'll come and join us for this week's challenge...we'd love to see how you ground your images.
Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)

Love the extra detail you have added to this adorable image Lynne - looks fantastic. Love the papers/colours you have used (even the CORAL flower, lol!!!) & the ticket punch corners look great. Hugs :)
