Crafty Creations Challenge

Well it is hotter than blue blazes here in the Mohave Desert!! Too hot to sleep so Ive been creating. It has been as high as 128 degrees since Thursday. My house is hot, I'm hot ,all the critters are hot everthing is hot!! So now that Ive vented about this heat I guess I feel better. :) My card was made using Crafty Creations Sketch this week. Although you have to look hard to see it the print is stitched on. I used one of the Tildas that my teamie Cheryl at Pixie Cottage sent me. My papers are SU. I used a flowers nestie to cut out the frame for Tilda to sit on. Stitched it with the navy blue. I ran some vellum thru the dotted swiss folder and mounted it behind the frame. The frame is foam dotted up to create the seat for Tilda. My punch is a MS loop that my friend Martha sent me. By the way it has been on my wish list for a while so I was so quite excited when I got a box of treasures from Martha and there it was. She is a super friend!! I love to make flowers and used a daisy punch for these. The sentiment was made with SU punches.
It also fits challenges:

It is super fun for me to see all the wonderful things you do with my little gifties. This card is so wonderful, from the flower frame, to the flowers you created, the stitching here and there and the coloring on the Tilda. Great card, girlfriend! Love it.
