Hippie chick with pretty daisies.

 Another try to win the fab prizes on offer at Sugar nellie. Well who wouldn't want to win this,

Spellbinders grand caliber and a spot on the simply sassy design team with consolation prizes for the finalists of 12 sugar nellie stamps too.

Told you I couldn't leave any of the girls out. I found some scraps of white paper so I'm good for another card, hope my car defrosts a bit so I can finally get out of the house, I've been out once in the last 7 weeks since my surgery and since I was told I could finally drive again last monday the weather has been unsuitable to drive anywhere. Oh I long for freedom! I haven't even started my christmas shopping yet so thats going to be fun, especially since hubby and son are so unhelpful when I ask what they'd like (thought I could get it on the internet) so far they will be getting empty jars and boxes of nothing as thats all they keep saying ...don't know.

This card I wanted a summery feel to as I always think she looks like she's sat making daisy chains. Oh for summer, I do think all this snow is so pretty and love the crisp air but have to say I'm a summer girl at heart.

I again used promarkers to colour hippie chick and as I said found some scraps of paper. I again embossed them using fiskars embossing mats. The irridescent white paper is a bit of wrapping paper, it is pearl white but when it catches the light shows pinks, blues and even greens like mother of pearl. I love it and hope it still counts as white.

Best say as not sure if the piccy shows it very well the card is a gate fold , just in case anyone wondered.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-

I am a summergirl at heart as well, so i like the daisy' chains a lot!
Great coloring of the girl, but she does indeed look a little sad. I feel sorry for her, she should smile when the sun is there. Do i have to worry about her?;-)
Now seriously, great card. Love the pearl drops in the corners and the card itself!
Thanks for playing along at creative cowgirl challenge!
