Theme of Flowers at Crafting When We Can-Sweet Escapes Digis is sponsoring us!

This week at Crafting When We Can is so special because we are being sponsored by Sweet Escapes Digis  and they have a great collection of digital images in their Etsy store.  We are using the Theme of Flowers and this image I'm using is called Ella.  She is a full sized image but I wanted to accent her beautiful face and upper collar so enlarged her that way--the joy of going digital!  I used dimensional pop dots under her to bring the attention to her.
I love the "burnished" look of her red hair and how it compliments the Teal coloring of her dress!  I just so happened to have this Graphic 45 printed paper that has all the colors in it and matched so well!  How lucky is that!!  You'd find it hard to believe that I fit this all on a 5.25 sq card!  I put a light blue mat cut very close behind her picture to lift it from the busy paper.  In the flowers, I used several different sizes and shades, pulled from the coloring.  Then I glued a butterfly on for even more accent.  On the inside liner, I reversed the Graphic 45 paper and had a complimentary design paper with a retro kind of cut on the verse from my stash.  think this will make a wonderful Birthday card for a dear friend!  We hope you will come join us for this great challenge-We can't wait to see YOUR creation!
I would like to enter the following:
