One card, two challenges!

TGIF everybody!

I've got a busy one ahead of me so I'm gonna get right to the card...

I started making my card using this week's Flutter By photo inspiration challenge as my jumping off point. I pulled my colors from the blue sky, white clouds and the daisy flowers. Then when I went to search for a stamp, little Anise Ketto was a natural fit with her daisies... talk about a perfect match! :)
The blue skies, white flowers, yellow sunshine and fresh, new, green grass all say spring to me so I am also throwing this into the Magical Monday challenge as well... good thing I used a fairy on this one! Making one card work for two challenges doesn't happen all that often for me, so I'm patting myself on the back for this. LOL!

Ok, I've got to jet... have a wonderful weekend everybody!
