Sweet Treats With The Southern Girls

Hi there, it's time for a new challenge with the Southern Girls,

As usual there are some brilliant sponsors, I'm using the sweetest of images by one of them,
A Day For Daisies
I'm not sure if it's what Lou had in mind when she set the theme but I think the image is uber sweet and I'm sure the flower he's eating is quite a treat! ;)

The gorgeous leaf die cut is a SweetCuts Die that I won a month or so ago, I have to say that it gives a really beautiful, clean cut!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

DBD, Orange,
JIC, Kraft,
SOS125, Stitching,
SSB141, Frames,
AI65, Autumn colours,
TSG231, Leaves,
MIM164, Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi, Julie, I love that face and I also love that you used one paper for your base and your layer. It is a wonderful design technique that allows your project to have depth and interest without interfering with the focal grouping. The composition is awesome, that little open leaf die cut and sentiment in the corner is perfect.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful project with us here at Shopping Our Stash!

PS: I would love to see this in my challenge at
