In my garden is a....

....cute little girl holding a sunflower.  Well, at least on my card that is.  This adorable stamp is Swiss Pixie Birgitta from CC Designs.  I colored her using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  My card base is marine blue. I added a piece of yellow gingham patterned paper cut a little smaller than the base and backed in white.  I cut the image out in an oval and backed it in marine blue. I then cut it out again using scalloped scissors (or as my 7 year old calls them...crazy scissors).  I added them image to the left side. Then I cut a strip of white cardstock and punched one side using an eyelet lace border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts.  I added a brown polka dotted ribbon and then added it to the right side.  I backed the sentiment in marine blue and added it to the top right.  I also added a blue flatback pearl to the top right corner and one to the bottom right corner.  I added a sunflower button to the bottom of the ribbon.
