Simon Says Challenge #2/Cute Card Thursday Challenge #56

I created this card for two different challenges. I actually had 2 ideas, and they just worked so well together, I combined the challenges onto one card.

Simon Says Callenge #2: Recycle. Use something, anything that had a use before. I used the cutoffs from my daughter's jeans.

Cute Card Thursday #56 - Floral Fantasy. Use any type of flower on your card.

Stamps: Sarah Kay, Best Yet (Stampin' Up!), flourish stamp
Ink: Momento, Copics, Brilliance 3 color Peacock
Paper: Bazzill Bling, Yoyo yellow, Georgia Pacific White
Embellishments: Prima’s, Dew Drops, beads, ribbon from stash, Flower Soft
Other notes: I used a stencil and airbrushed the grass and sky/clouds with my Copic Airbrush System.

For the Cute Card Thursday challenge, I wanted Sarah Kay to be standing in a field of flowers. I used Prima's with beads to give them a center. I used Flower Soft to fill in the field of flowers.

The hat, bow and overalls are stamped onto and cut our from an old pair of my daughter's jeans. I just cut off the legs of her jeans to make shorts as the knees were gone anyway, and thought this would make great clothing on a card. I used Copics to add some color for the hat band and patches.

I hope you have a great rest of your weekend.
