Clever Girl! I'm full of Admiration!

It's the 19th and the time when we set a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time (OSAAT) and our theme this week is anything Goes with Daughters/Girls. This was perfect for me as I was asked to make a card for a very clever young lady who eventually wants to become a lawyer.   It seems her parents are confident that she will pass her exams so now they are prepared. Nothing frilly or fancy was the request.

This image by Ken Benner seemed perfect and you can find it here.

I found a odd piece of paper that fitted the colours of card that I chose and covered the front of a plain card. I cut a bunting shape from Spellbinders Baby Buntings die that came over from the US. A plain  and scallop Spellbinders square cut the image shapes. No flowers at all which was hard but I understood!!

What a cold start to our first Bank Holiday of the year, to day it seems to be a little warmer if you stay out of the wind.

Over on the One Stitch At A Time (OSAAT) blog our latest challenge is 'Anything Goes With Easter /Passover'

For my card this week I chose to use My Heart Pieces image called Titli and you can find her here. I've coloured her in Spring colours of yellow and green and used a couple of Pink Petticoat's digi papers in ribbon stripes and tiny dots that I've had for some time now, the colour is Pistachio.

I mounted the image onto a piece of Core-Dinations card and used the reverse for my simple leaves. The flowers are ages old but were sitting at the top of my flower box begging to be used.

I would like to enter the following:-
