St. David's Day celebration with Kenny K and Through the Purple Haze!

 I was so happy to get the chance to help out my newest DT group, Through the Purple Haze, by covering for a member that was under the weather.  Hope you're on the way to recovery Pam!
The neat thing is that I got to use an image from Kenny K Downloads called Farmers Daughter!  She's adorable~
NOW the best part of this challenge is that "across the pond" they will be celebrating St. David's Day soon.  I admit that I had to brush up on my geography and traditions to get the true grasp of what a big deal this is.  I found flags in black & gold, Welsh flags in green, white, and red with a big red dragon in the middle and gorgeous daffodils.  Now that's a whole lot of "stuff" to get worked into a card even by someone in the USA!  But now you can understand my choice of mat and background design paper and the white buttons with black & white baker's twine.  The Welsh flag colors show up
in her "Farmers" clothes and hat.  No dragon lol, but think I got everything else accounted for.  In the inside I added some complimentary paper and a pretty sentiment.  I hope you've enjoyed learning about the Welsh celebration and my card.  Be sure and go enter in our Weekly challenge at Through the Purple Haze.
I'd like to enter the following Challenges:
