Delightful Challenges Thursday

Good Morning!  I hope you're all having a great week.  My week is officially over!  Whoo-hoo.  Today is my birthday so I am heading to the beach for the day with the kids.  They start back to school on Monday, so I wanted to be able to spend some time with them, too.

This week's challenge is ready for you to play along at Delightful Challenges and this week we're...

Making it Pop!

So, I started with a my card base from one of the hoarded kits.  The kit actually came from friend and TMS DT member, Angela.  I put the sweet Easter images aside and used this fabulous paper.  I'm hoping I can convince her to cut me some more of those fabulous leaves and flower.  Then I added Flower Power Basket of Daisies.  I am loving this series of characters.  So darn cute!  And having grown up in a flower shop, I guess I'm just drawn to them naturally.

I am still playing with Debbie's great sketch - it couldn't have been more perfect for this card.  I printed her twice so that I can layer up her hat.  I colored it and then ran thru the Cuttlebug with that weave pattern embossing plate by Stampin' Up!  This gave her a straw hat.

Then out came the pop dots!  I layered the hat, the image on the scalloped mat and then popped up the flower.  Fun right?

Well, come on over to the Delightful Challenges blog to see more great projects.  Have a great Thursday.  I'm off to slather on the sunscreen.
