MMSC18 - Daisies for a sweet friend

Hey y'all! Time for the weekly Midnight Madness sketch challenge over at priscillastyles . . . and I have to say, this one gave me a real challenge! I did come up with several ideas but finally went with this one - since we've had a few rainy days here, in typically sunny SC, the little girl image decked out in her rain gear seemed appropriate and daisies always seem to make me smile, especially when I'm missing the sun! - how bout you?

My papertole image has four seperate layers to make her pop right off of the page, then I glazed her little boots and the daisy petals to make 'em super shiny.

I diecut two nestie layers for my background in contrasting colors and layered them between the ribbon and metallic threads used to thread these adorable daisy buttons ( yes! - they are buttons) Instead of snipping of the button back as I might normally do, I just punched some small holes where each button should be, threaded them, and popped up the whole card front w/dimensional adhesives. My sentiment is by Inkadinkado, hand-stamped and cut from pearlized cardstock and heat-embossed w/clear powder for a professional finish.

Make sure you stop by to check out the sketch for yourself and enter to win some great prizes from our incredibly generous sponsors this week/month.
