RRRR Challenge and My "Whiff of Spring" Card

Hi Everyone!
Well...it's the first of the month but there will be no new challenge over @ Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings today. ;(
For today's "Use Dies or Punches + Ribbon" challenge, we have teamed up with "Whiff of Joy" and some of their awesome design team to create some sweet projects for you.
I chose to use the cute "Girl and Her Lamb" image.
I colored her with watercolors then used colored pencils to finish off her hair, and chalked in some clouds.

I LOVE this line of ribbon since I love coloring images to match. Notice the pink and white dots on her dress.
BTW...people are always commenting on my "perfect" bows. My trick is the "Bow-Easy" available @ Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The beautiful daffodils are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The papers are Bazzill Swiss Dots, K&Company's ~ Susan Winget "Spring Blossom" Specialty Paper Pad, and Fairway mica metallic. 

To meet the challenge requirements, I used Neastability dies to cut out the image and Stampin' Up's scalloped boarder punches.
I hope you will come on over to our Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog, see what the other girls have whipped up for you, and join in on the fun. You could win a prize from either Really Reasonable Ribbon or Whiff of Joy!!!!

BTW...you still have a few days left to apply for the RRRR design team!

Love it. Very spring like. My favorite part - the daffodil variety. Love the contrast between the drawing and the 3 dimensional.
