Joan's Challenge Yellow, Black, and White

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a great time at the dog show yesterday! Up for another round today. But first before I head out I wanted to post my card for Joan's Challenge Yellow, Black, and White this week. You can see the challenge by clicking this link....
The challenge requirements this week are:
Use the colors yellow, black, and white
Use a frame
Use something to do with spring...parasol, umbrella, etc
You must use something sold at Joan's Gardens
Here is my entry....
 My image is from Whimsy stamps. I stamped her on bristol paper and colorized her with copic markers. She was then cut out by hand. I love to cut! She is placed inside and out of a Cheery Lynn die cut. So that is my umbrella and my frame. The Cheery Lynn die was purchased at Joan's and is one of my favorite ovals. Now on my most recent trip to Joan's I purchased the Memory Box blooming posie at Joan's suggestion. Boy am I glad I did. I used my small spiral posie cut from another Memory Box die I purchased at Joan's. I cupped the blooming posie around the spiral posie to create a new flower. Thanks for great die suggestion Joan. I think these flowers are so cute.I added pearl sprigs and a sentiment to top this card off. I have been buying more polka dot paper since the polka dot challenge and am loving it.
 A closer view of my new posie flowers.
 Another view of my posie flowers.
This is the inside sentiment.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Mrs. Swandog, I love how you have the little girl with one foot inside the frame and one foot outside the frame. And it is genius how you mirrored the black and yellow in the umbrella with the black and yellow design on her dress. You thought outside the box on this one. :o)
