Christmas in August with Daisy

We have been so busy running the kids around to tennis lessons, acting lessons and playing outside that I haven't had much time to play along in challenges lately.  Now, with the exception of band and flute lessons, there isn't quite so much running so I found some time to head into the craft room.  Since it's been awhile since I've played along in challenges, I decided to check out a few and see what I could come up with.  
Squiggle Stamps currently has a challenge to make something for Christmas.  I used the image Daisy with Gift (which happens to be a freebie right now in the shop), colored her in with copics and added some stickles.  I followed this weeks sketch over at Mojo Monday but modified the sketch elements to fit the size of my image.
I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in July
Crafty Catz - Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin' - Christmas in July
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Christmas in July
Allsorts - Free and Easy

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

I like the papers and layout and the image is adorable. I like the way you have created a card that does not look flat despite the fact it is only one layer. It is so cute image.
