Mo's DP2 Challenge #131 - Flowers

Top of the mornin' y'all! It's time again for another challenge at DP2. This week we want to see flowers. All kinds of flowers! Any kind of flowers!

I know this card seems a little off season right now, but I made it quite some time ago for my sister's birthday on St. Patrick's day. It was mailed off at the beginning of March, but I wanted to use this one for my "Flower" entry. You can find this image and hundreds of other fabulous creations by Mo at her online shop Mo's Digital Pencil. We are hoping you'll join us in the challenge this week!

So here is my funky little card using Little Irish Dancer...

Here is a closer look at her big hair (she must have a little Texan in her!) and her adorable Irish costume...

A side view with a peak-a-boo at the inside...

I searched the Internet for an Irish poem to go inside this card. Here's what I came up with...

The salutation panel, where I wrote a personal message to my big sis...

Here's a view of the entire inside...

Here's the artistic view of the card - hmmmmmm, maybe in my eyes only..
