Child's Play at Pile It On

This week at Pile It On! we're challenging you to include a child at play on your project (well, not an actual child...they'd be hard to stick on!)

The card closes flat to 4x5.5 inches. For the front, I used this beautiful, pre-colored sentiment from TLC Creations (thank you, Paulette!) I used this gorgeous Wildflower Corner die from Memory Box through the card. I used some of the reserve cutouts to fit in sections of the delicate die.

Pile It On! is sponsored this week by Digital Delights, and I used Swinging Scottie & Swinging Dolly to make a card with a little scene:

I colored the images with Copics, but I paper-pieces the leaves, the hair, her bows, and the shoes. I also added fine Flower Soft to the Teddy Bears. I fussy-cut the images glued them onto the card, and hand-cut around them.

The gorgeous blossom DP is from Graphic45, as is the green patterned paper. The darker green paper is form Core'Dinations.

And the back with a message section:
