Let's Bring Back the Easter Bonnet

Hi all.  Welcome to the weekend!  Are you having a great one???

Just as soon as I saw this little lady on Sassy Cheryl's Designs, I thought "now that's an Easter bonnet"!!  And I thought she just must have "carrot top" hair.  So I've worked her into an Easter card for my granddaughter, Madeline.  What a fun, fun image to play with!

I am rather sorry I used blue on the big bow, but I guess it's not so bad!  {shrug}  Isn't this DP the greatest???  I know... I think I say that for every card I make, don't I?  hahaha.   Well... I do like them all!  But, this is really kewl!  It gives you so many color choices and I tried to get them all in there!  haha.

I punched out the flowers with the 'old-fashioned' punches!  This card was just beggin' for more flowers!!!  teehee.  Then I stickled up the colored petals along with the butterfly/bow on her hat.  Added some pearls, distressed the paper edges and it's ready for Madeline.  I really like her.  She just makes me smile.
