A Day for Daisies - Little Striped Dress

It's my turn to post a card on the ADFD Blog and I chose this quick to color image, Little Striped Dress.  I made the decision that the part on hair of this little miss would be a bit wonky.  Looking at her dress, if I were doing this again, I'd vary the highlight a bit - it's too straight, but I love the look of the balloons!
After fussy cutting her, I used the white background paper, which has been sitting on my desk for about a year (discarded from another card adventure).  The word "happy" was already die cut and I just had to die cut the word "birthday" from black paper (both from MFT).  "Stick It" adhesive paper is was perfect for adhering this super-skinny die cut.  Look carefully and you will see the three rhinestones that complete the card!

November's challenge on the ADFD Blog starts Friday.  Hope you will stop back and see what all of the DT created and play along!
