for my card this week I chose this gorgeous image from Priscilla. Isn't she just the sweetest young girl laying in the grass enjoying the fireflies! I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I saw this image and I'm super happy with how it turned out. 
 Below is a close up of the flowers. The large flower is made up from petals I got from Oriental Trading about  two years ago and sadly these are the last in my stash and I haven't been able to get the same ones again. The small flowers are from Prima.
I hope you'll join us and play along this week, we'd love to see what you create. Don't forget to drop by and leave some love for my DT sisters.
Here is where I entered my card this week, it's been so long since I entered any challenges, I almost forgot how to do it!!!
