That's gorgeous Chrissy! I could take you up on your offer but I suspect the Summer's would be way too hot for me if that's the winter temps! Thanks so much for playing along with Sweet Stampin' as well x

What a gorgeous card, I adore the cute image and the pretty flowers and butterfly. Thank you for joining us at Wild Orchid Challenges, I'm afraid though that our challenge rules only allow you to combine your entry with two other challenges plus you haven't used any daisies on your project which was the challenge for this week. I do wish you a lot of luck in the other challenges you have entered and hope to see you back joining us at Wild Orchid Challenges in the future, you'll find the challenge rules in the right side bar of our blog.
