My Second GD Card for "Stampin for the Weekend" Challenge

This fortnights Challenge is being sponser by Di's Digitals and she has chosen a Sketch for this Challenge
Di is offering as a prize 5 of her gorgeous digi stamps, and I hope that you will pop over and visit her site and see them, if you click on her name (Di's Digital) it will take you to her website.

I have used one of Di's digi images this one is young Maisy with her dog, and Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my Nestabililtie Oval dies, then mounted her onto a piece of red card, I also stamped the sentiment onto white card and mounted it in the same way.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card and Ive used three of the Butterfly Kisses papers from Nitwit Downloads, Ive followed the sketch and then created three flowers from some of the left over papers and popped a pearl brad and a charm from the bottom one, then stuck to my card on top of some punched out leaves.
I want to thank Kimmi and her team for allowing me the priviledge of joining her DT team for this last month and tell her I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also want to wish her good luck with her "Race for Life" in May, I sincerely hope that you will sponser her in this adventure and wish her good luck, if you like to see how you can do this click on this link and it will give you more information.

p.s. I am sure your MIL will appreciate a Mother's Day card .. .. if only we knew what people who are struggling like this actually understood or remember. We need to count our blessings every day don't we?
