Girly Girl - Sugar Bowl Challenge #37

Happy Fathers' Day to all those Dads out there, hope the sun is shining on you today, it certainly is in Cornwall - and it promises to be a great day.  I am very lucky this year to have my Dad staying here with me for a holiday and as my hubby is also home, I get to share today with two Dads!

I posted up the FD card I made for my Dad a while ago, so today's card is the one I've created as my entry for the Challenge #37 over on the Sugar Nellie Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog - check out the site for full details. 

We have a great sketch to work with this week and the shaped layer on the sketch got me rummaging through my box of nestabilities for the octagonal die set.  There is the optional theme of 'Girly and Feminine' and so I selected the adorable 'Daisy with Pram' stamp for my card - you don't see so many little girls pushing their dollies out for a walk in the pram these days - such a shame I think, as I recall hours of happy fun playing with my own dollies when I was young!

After I'd coloured the image with ProMarkers and Copics, I cut it out with one of the nestability dies and punched ribbon slots on either side.  The background papers are from my stash and I cut some lacy strips with Martha Stewart punches and layered them up under the ribbon.  I added touches of Glossy Accents to the pram wheels and Daisy's bows in her hair.  The flowers are from my stash and include some from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I added some leaves punched with another MS punch.  I attached the little general sentiment so that the card can be used for any occasion. 

Thanks for visiting today, it will be the regular Queen Kat Blog Hop tomorrow, so do come back and join in the fun!!
