Karen's Doodles freebie & die cuts r us sketch

You can snag this super cute Spring time girl free from Karen's Doodles when you join her Papercraft Planet group - the link is here.
I used the colour inspiration from this week's Karen Doodles UK challenge. It was a gorgeous green, pink and white confection and boy do I struggle with pink! I used this week's sketch from die cuts r us but my final card wasn't that pink - so I had another go! It's still not as girly as I'd like but it is perhaps closer....
On both the papers are Rob and Bob Studio and Sassafrass, the chipboard and brad - 3 bugs in a rug and flowers Prima. I ran a stitch along the length of the green ribbon to gather it up and of course there are pearls (there's always pearls!).
And a new challenge I've joined for fun challenges is letting you make anything. ;-)
tfl and a happy and peaceful Easter.
