Stamp-A-Holics & Stamping 411

First I found the Sketch Challenge at Stamping 411 and then the colors at Stamp-A-Holics...and was I ever challenged. I shuffled, reshuffled, went this way and then that way and just about called it quits, but then really rose to the challenge, put my head down and got to some serious are the colors that are being called for...can I do this?

and the sketch challenge from Stamping 411 ~ love the sketches that are given, 
it really helps me with a starting point. 

So here's my card...still not sure how I feel about it, but she... is absolutely adorable!
What a beautiful stamp set ~ it's a must have in my mind!

I grabbed my Tulip Border Punch and added a garden of tulips to the inside of my card!

Thanks so much for popping by, hope you had a little taste of spring!
Enjoy your day!
