Guest Designer at All Dressed Up this week!! SO HONORED!

I've always admired the Digital Image site, All Dressed Up, and recently had an opportunity to enter a challenge they had with the theme Hearts.  I was truly honored to have my entry chosen as one of the Top Three... which then turned into an Invite--eek!---to be the Guest Designer at the next Challenge on March 2nd!  I'm Over The Moon to say the least.
This is my entry for that Great Honor, using I Love My Puppy-in love from the first moment I saw it in the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop HERE.  This dress I colored reminds me of a sundress I had back in my childhood that had these intricate "medallions" on it similar to the blue ones in the coloring.  She has such a sunny personality I had to put her in the clouds!  I matted that image on some gorgeous sunny dp- also used in the liner- and I took some baby red ric-rac and wrapped the edge.  As I tend to do, overthink the designing, I wanted to show this really neat raindrop paper that I have in my stash (sunny/rain) and used some floral die cuts from my stash (colored to match the yellows), topped off with a button(favorite embellie) and some embroidery floss.  The perfect stamp says "I'm Here Rain or Shine" from KKK.  Inside, I kept it simple using the Umbrella and sentiment stamp that says "Wishing you Brighter Days".
This is a card very special to me cause it will be going to a very Dear Niece that is recovering from surgery and is now on the road to recovery.  It was just a perfect time to be asked to use such a great image from All Dressed Up and I thank them for the opportunity to do so!  Check them out-I'm sure you will find the perfect image for YOUR life!
