It's Thursday so my day with a card using some faves from the Quixotic Inspiration store

This is one of The Greeting Farm's Miss Anya Hats Off - isn't she beautiful?  I really do think she's having a secret giggle about something, don't you?!  I used Bazzill Basics Smoothie kraft cardstock for the card base and matched her up with papers from the Cosmo Cricket Social Club paper pad.

For the embellishing, I created the shabby chic flowers with the Marianne D Creatables Chinese Rose dies with 6mm beads for the centres.  The leaf is from the Make It Crafty Butterfly Leaves lasercut dies set that I stained with Distress Stain in Forest Moss.   I used Distress Stain in Antique Linen around the edges of EVERYTHING except that cute little lady!

I'm really pleased with the way she came out!  Other faves on my shopping list are:

    She probably just read the LCI blog and Kerrys newest toy comments! Very cute and I like how you used the leaves having them go behind her.
