He's named her Annie!

This card is for :-
1. Roses On Paper - challenge # 20 - Lavender, soft blue and cream
2. Stamp Something - Something with your favourite stamp and using diecutting or punching tools
3. Simon Says Stamp - sketch

There was an odd moment today while I was making this card, my son was watching and touching as usual when out of the blue while I was painting the image he said "I like her". "Do you love, why?" I said. To which he replied "She's called Annie and she's in my class at nursery". Now my son dosen't start Nursery till next Tuesday, and as far as I know there is no Annie starting his Nursery, he has been once to look round but didn't meet any other children while we were there. As the image is actually a Belles 'N' Whistles stamp and she's called Belle, just between me and my son, I am now renaming my stamp Annie.
I tried something a bit different today with my flowers, instead of using patterned paper, I used plain card and stamped flourishes on in a contrasting coloured ink.
Roses On Paper gave us a beautiful colour combo which was Lavender, Soft Blue and Cream The colours look so pretty together I really enjoyed using them.
Stamp Something want to know what your favourite stamp is by using it on this challenge. Belle and Teddy is my favourite even though it is new, I've just really taken to it. They also asked us to include the use of die cutting tools or punches, I used both a cricut and punches.
Simon Says stamp offered us a brilliant sketch to use, only thing is I don't have a leaf punch or anything on my cricut to cut leaves so used extra little daises instead, just to fill out the corner a bit.

Hi Tracy

Annie really is a cutie and lovely in lilac. Now if there really is an Annie next week, me thinks we will need a photographer to take a picture of your expression.
