Garden Path of Flowers

Sometimes an idea for a card or technique for that card ends up being more work than I originally planned.  Such was the case with this card.  I used digital stamps by From the Heart, making a design similar to the sketch. The cut and place, moving images over and over for placement stretched my patience but then after printed it out, I realized I did not leave enough room at the top of the page so I had to start all over moving each section, etc!  But I really like how it turned out.  It was worth the frustrations.  Isn't she cute?

I colored this according to the optional colors listed in the FTH challenge, using Copics.   I fussy cut a few extra flowers and popped them up on dimensional tape.   The grass is a Your Next Stamp die.  The clouds are Memory Box.
Here is the sketch I used:
From the Heart - sketch, optional colors
Crop Stop - anything
Crafty Calendar - Spring
Joy Clair - anything
Simon Monday - things with wings
Simon Wednesday - anything
Work It Wednesday - Spring
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Deep Ocean - flowers
