MSB Challenge #7

Tomorrow we have another challenge for you over at MSB. This week was a sketch challenge and surprisingly enough, it ended up being another business envelope size card. We also had to use a flower somewhere on the card. Here is the sketch we were given to use from Brandi:

And here is my card:As you can see, I turned the sketch sideways to accompany the "I'm Here" Doodler girl and Cupcake image I chose to use. I love this paper from Doodlebug, and I thought it would work well with these images. I paper pieced her shirt, pants, and the top of the cupcake and added stickles to all the dots on the paper as well as the hearts on the cupcake paper. I just had to put a flower in her hair, but couldn't leave it at that, so I added another flower on the lower right side. I was going to add a sentiment on the front, but didn't like how it looked so I omitted it.

Tonight we went to the zoo for a nightly event they hold every once in awhile for members. About 15 minutes after we arrived, it started to rain a little, but since it wasn't too bad we made our way to the animal buildings. While inside the second building, we suddenly heard what sounded like lots of rain ~ and unfortunately it was. After waiting it out a bit, we decided it was time to go home since it wasn't letting up at least we were in a building that was right in front of the zoo entrance and didn't have to do a lot of running outside to get to the truck. I think that was our shortest visit ever to the zoo ~ I guess we should have followed our original plan and gone last night instead.....I just hope the rain is done by tomorrow!
