Sew Many Challenges #12 DT Card

Hello everyone! It's Friday and it's time for a new challenge at Sew Many Challenges. This week...Anything Goes! Don't you all just love to be able to decide what you want to make! I know I do. Here is what I came up with:

I was trying to come up with a little something different this week...and, I think I did. I chose 'Girl with Heart' as my image this week. Isn't she sweet...You can get her here at Sew Many Cards. I'm not really sure what to call this, it's just something I made up, I guess.

Here is the card opened. The two pieces are held together by a brad so you can just turn the top to the side to see the sentiment. I liked the idea of giving this card to a child and writing something special for them inside. I know kids like to hold onto things...especially cute pictures, so I added a ribbon on the back so it could be hung and used as a decoration on the wall or door. This card is hanging in the first picture...neat idea, I thought.

Here is a close-up of this cute little girl.

My Recipe:
DP is Daisy Bucket 'Playful Petals'
Cardstock is DCWV
Image on Neenah classic crest solar white #80 paper
Skin: E53,51,50, then all over with E000 to add a little pink
Dress: R35,32,&20
The heart was embossed with pink embossing powder.
Well, I think that's all my info. Make sure you check and see what the rest of the DT has for you. The sponsor this week is KLM Designs and this weeks winner will receive 3 free want a shot at those, don't you. The challenge ends next Thursday the 29th, so get your thinking caps on and head on over to Sew Many Challenges and enter for your chance to win!
Thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing YOUR creations!
Have a great day!
HFOS: Use Up That Stock

Cute card and neat "folding" idea. I also love how you added the freckles to the little girl (I had to double check my image to make sure I didn't miss them - LOL)
