How Did She Get Up There?

My granddaughter is such a tomboy. She will love this "plaque" that I made for her room. It was going to be a card, but then I realized I can't make a card, because of the challenge A Day For Daisies is sponsoring, so I added some nice big flowers. I will put it in a shadow box. I am just not sure I want Molly climbing trees in her bare feet...but then I played with Barbies until I was thirteen! No tree climbing for me...unless it was to build a tree house for my dolls...

The image is from A Day For Daisies. I love their sweet. This image was provided free of charge. That's what they do for their challenges...isn't that neat?

This little pixie is gathering blossoms. I used my Letraset Aqua Markers and Prisma pencils. I also added some glitter to dress up the image. The background is done with my CTMH cloud stencil. The paper is also CTMH...very "vintage", as I have had it since the turn of the century!

The flowers were done with my Vagabond and Tattered Florals Die designed by Tim Holtz. I sanded the cs, and curled the edges of the flowers with my old wooden dry embossing stylus. The gems in the center are from Michael's. I used some organdy ribbon that I bought long ago at the Offray ribbon outlet in PA. I also sewed the purple and red with white thread on my machine.

The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets' Garden Girls Set, and the other stamped images are from Crafty Secrets' Hardware set. I think the sentiment is perfect for this card!
