Compsoe a card challenge #8

Happy Saturday all my blogger friends!  I am giving Becky's compose a card challenge a try again this week :) It is getting a little easier, but still a challenge for me. This is the deets for this weeks challenge:
This is what I came up with:

I went for the black & white polka dot dress....Like the dress I gathered/pleated the top of my card & added some shear netting to the bottom. I colored a piece of white ribbon green to match the green bow on the dress added a clear button with polka dot paper to show through. Added a little tag & that's that!! I even took my photo outside llike the photo of the little girl.
All paper is PTI as well as the greeting, ribbon & netting from Michaels, Clear buttons are from Taylored Expressions.
That's it for this one....better get to my weekend chores! Thanks for the visit today!!

Can flowers be blue?

Happy Easter all my fellow bloggers!! We are having the most beautiful day here in Arizona :) I have been wanting to play along with Becky's Compose a card  challenge. This challenge has challenged me beyond frustration!!! LOL!!! I have been working on it for 2 days! These are the deets to the chalenge:

seems pretty simple..right??? HA!
this is what I ended up with.

Not ecactly sure of all the rules....hope it's ok to use punches & other things?? My papers today are PTI & cosmo cricket. Buttons are all PTI, flowers are made with various punches, mostly Marvy I think. My flower stem is actually made of black felt....something I picked up at CKC a while back. The flag is also black felt. The sentiment is  PTI. OBVIOUSLY I need some serious practice with the old sewing machine! LOL!!
All & all, I have decided this one has been a good learning experience!!! Can't wait for the next!! :)
Now I better get outside & enjoy some of this weather!!
Thanks for todays visit!!!
