Enough chitchat. Now on to today's card. I needed more separation between the little girl and mailbox because I wanted flowers to cascade out of the mailbox without crowding the two images. I'll let you in on a secret. I hate masking. But there was just enough space between the two images not to have to do masking. It was easy to ink the girl, stamp, then ink the mailbox and stamp. Thank you MFT! I paper pieced the dress using an old Daisy D's gingham check (I'm hoarding this pp since DDs no longer exists; yet another one of my favorite companies no longer in business). It's hard to see in the photo but she also has tiny black pearls for the buckles of her shoes. This card is for My Favorite Things Guest Designer challenge which was to include flowers.
