The girl with octopus hair!

Say hi to Maggie or as Mollie refers to her the girl with octopus hair and wearing her mummy's hat and dress..............but it's naughty to steal other peoples clothes so she's got some flowers to say sorry!
The things kids come out with!
Anyway back to the card as I said this is Maggie - Springtime girl! One of Heather Valetine's wonderful digi-stamps.

using my Spectrum Noirs I've coloured her in my favourite colours.

I've used Crafter's companion embossalicious folder on some core-dinations card to frame her with some spellbinder die-lites for edges - the purple card looks a lot darker than it is in real life!

The backing papers, ribbon and buttons are from my stash and the gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid

The reason for doing this card is to enter into the lacy Sunshine blog challenge which you can find here: http://lacysunshinechallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ and hopefully get a certain design team lady to stop nagging me!

Great card Sharon, I can guess who was 'nagging' you! I've got this digi too and just love Mollie's description of her hair, you can always rely on the little 'uns to say what they think! Anyhoo back to the card, well your choice of colours couldn't fail with me (as you know, your colouring technique is brilliant (as always) and the whole card just works so well together, very fresh and spring-like;just a shame we can't say the same for the weather.... we've got snow again! Good luck in the challenge and hopefully my offering will appear in a day or so/1

Hugs Su xx
