Blowing in the wind

Couldn't wait to share this gorgeous image I chose as part of my prize for winning last weeks Do You Stack Up challenge. She is called "Wind in my Hair" and is from A Day For Daisies

I chose her for Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge#120, inspired by a song. This image brought the song "The answer is blowing in the Wind" to mind. You know, the one that starts "Where have all the flowers gone?", which lead nicely to One Stop Crafts challenge#120 Spring Flowers and All Sorts Challenge#92 Make your own Flowers.
So, while I was making my own flowers(stylised daffodils), thought I might as well make my own buttons for Delicious Doodles challenge#14 :D
Now all I needed was a sketch, so I went for Stamping Vacations Build a Sketch challenge. This is quite a useful challenge if your ever stuck for layout ideas, as they have a set list of layering elements and just give your a selection to work with.
The dp's are from Paper Artsy's Rum n Raisin collection, edged with Tim Holtz Mustard Seed ink.
Enjoy :D XXX
PS We have a fab new challenge starting at Creative Cowgirls Tomorrow, so don't forget to drop in and check it out :D
