Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  It's Thursday already! Whoo-hoo!  That makes me very happy because that means only one more day to the weekend.

This week's challenge for Delightful Challenges is going to touch the girly in all of us...

Frilly and Fancy

How fun is that - we get to play with all things girly.  And I had tons of fun creating this card for you.  I hope it inspires you to play along with us.

I think Girl and Bear is a sweet image.  So much fun to color and worked perfectly with the Echo Park papers I used and the beautiful rolled rose die from My Favorite Things.  I am very pleased with the results.  I pulled all of these elements together using a great sketch by Karen Giron at Sweet Sketch Sunday.
