Is it a Pond or a Puddle?

      I'm sharing with you my first DT card for Angie's Digital Stamps and this darling little girl, playing in the (is it a pond or a puddle?) is called Daisy Mae Playing in Water.  Isn't she superb?  :-D  The  theme for our fun challenge is "Anything Goes" but you may use the twist of "Fall Colors" if you like.

     I colored with my favorite ProMarkers, then cut her with a square die from Cottage Cutz turned 'on point', as they say in quilting.  The square of purple CS was a scrap I found in the basket and it worked so perfectly with the dots in her dress that it simply had to decorate the card front.  I printed out the sentiment, cut it with a QuicKutz rectangle die, and added it to the CS just below where I had printed the first part of the sentiment using white gel pen.

     I added a few wraps of sparkle twine tied into a bow to finish it.  The background is ombre on water color paper.  Although it has quite few pieces, it still looks rather clean if not completely simple.  :-)


     Please come and play in our challenge this month.  We love seeing what you create and you could win some fabulous images from Angie's.  :-D   Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Adorable image, must be a pond, eh? too deep for a puddle, unless you are the Vicar of Dibley!

She is ever so cute! Love the background you created here too. The bit of twine on the side is the perfect embellishment.
