"Oh Baby" is all dressed up with her fancy Easter/Spring dress on. She is so cute she looks like a little doll. This image is from the Sampler Edition #3 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.

Suzanne, our DT leader, gave us a wonderful challenge this week. It was to use buttons in a creative way. I can usually think of a million ways to use buttons, but this week when I tried my mojo was hiding. The intent was for them to look like little flower centers/buds. The pearls are Kaisercraft and are a beautiful lavender. I wished the pictures could have picked up the color better. The DP is CTMH and the flowers and ribbon are from my stash. The leaves and border were punched with MS punches. Of course, to finish it off I applied some stickles to her hairband, dress, and shoes. There really are some pretty sparkly glittery shoes for little girls. I think my little granddaughter has every color.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Use Pink and Purple
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Flower Power
Ooh La La Creations - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Challenges - Distressing
My Time to Craft - Kids Kardz
Hand Full of Stamps - Let it Shine - interpret (She is shining)
Stamp Something - Something Girly
Sweet Stampin - Something for a child

The inside has the same border as the front. The sentiment block was cut with my nestabilities and a flower with another button bud added.

To see more wonderful creations and ways to use buttons go to the store blog and check out what other projects the amazing DT has done.

MY BLOG CANDY ends March 14th.
