It snowed here in the early morning hours then turned into a cold rain, the kind of day to stay in and create. Too bad we still had school so I packed a bag of crafting stuff because I was really in the card making mood and I decided to spend my lunchtime finishing up this card.

I really love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil, she is so cute! It was one of the few times I picked the DP first and then colored to match it. I also knew I wanted to use these pink feathery, lace flowers that I have had for years and couldn't ever seem to find the right use for them, till now. I decided to distress this card because it kind of went with the image and DP. I really like the way it came out, after I looked at the card posted I think I should have stamped some little flowers on the saying or made it smaller too much white showing I think, next time I'll know better.

Here are the challenges that this card fits

Paper Sundaes Sixth Challenge-Their challenge was to do some distressing on your card. I used my distressing tool on every layer. This is my first time trying their challenges, lots of fun!
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C25-The challenge is this great sketch that I used, I loved working with this one!
Practical Scrappers Challenge-Their challenge was fun because it is to use stamps, rubber, digi,
acrylic or foam, your choice. I chose DIGI, though I love rubber too!
Lexi's Creations Challenge #8-This is an easy challenge this week, the challenge is "anything goes", how fun is that!
Incy Wincy Challenge 31-Their challenge is Touchy Feely, add some texture to your project. My card has lots, the distressing, the embossed flower panel, and the lace flowers. Great challenge!
Dare U 2 Digi Challenge 31-Use your punches and a digi of course. I punched the branches around the flowers and the swirls around the saying.
Cupcake Crafts Challenge 79-The challenge this week is friends. What little boy or girl who had a pet didn't think of them as their best friend in the whole world, just like these two cuties!
Saturday Spotlight Challenge SSHP19-Doing the Mess Around is the challenge. They want you to distress your card. I love the look of distressed edges on a card, fun challenge!
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC55-The challenge is to use flowers on your creation. I put three of these lacey flowers together to make this flower. So glad I found their great blog!

Stamps- Mo's Digital Pencil Digi stamps, Hero Arts(saying)
Paper- SU Green Galore, Pixie Pink CS, Papertrey White CS, Basic Grey DP
Inks- Copics, SU Pixie Pink Ink
Accessories- Nesties, MS Branch Punch, Paper Shaper Swirl Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Lacy Flowers, Recollection Sticker Pearls

I think it's perfect, Mary! Love all of it.

I always pick my paper first because I would hate to color it all in and not have the paper to match, although I don't know how that is possible! LOL
