Curious horsefly baby card

Are you curious?  Well, i've been a fan of A Day for Daisies for some time and this year her sister, Sami started her own challenge blog called Sami Stamps.  Her images are so unique and sweet.  I love to create and her images are what get my mind thinking creatively.  I mean who would have thought of a sweet horsefly?

I decided to do a baby card using the Curious Horsefly digi, that's the name of image and you can find her images on Etsy or request them from her on her blog here.   She, like her sister, always has freebies for you to use too!

Here's my card:
I turned this card into a window card and i used Marianne Designs using Passe Partout Circle CR1239, i made a frame, then i used the outside circle from this die set and made the matted frame.  On the side i used a Memory Box die called Honey Blossom Sprig #98333 (i cut sections to fit and i cut it out of white and two other blues).  For the circle sentiment i used the smallest circle from Spellbinders Classic circles, but for the scalloped layer i used a buckle from Spellbinders Shapabilities  Ribbon Buckles S4-362 which looked like a daisy.  Both stamps are from the dollar bin at Michaels.   The star charms are from Jo-anns.

Here is the inside of the card so you can see the whole image..i also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called
Copics used:
R20, 22, B000, 00, 02, 04, E71, 77, 29, YG01, 13
Ribbon from my favorite place on Etsy called The Pink Petal

As always the best place to get your dies are from Dutch Paper Crafts.
