Inspire & The Little Mermaid

I was up early Sunday moring....like 4am to be exact...
sometimes I can't sleep and need something to keep me busy....
so I created cards for 4 different challenges.....
 

this card I made for the challenge at Joan's Gardens...
to use a framed lattice....
a bird.....
flowers.....
and a vertical sentiment.....
well, normally challenges don't throw me, but this one did....
in all the dies I have, not one is a lattice....
so I went thru my Cricut cartridges
 and found a lattice in the MS Elegant cake cartridge...
saved by Martha Stewart!!
but then there  was the problem of the vertical sentiment....
I had this great Asian vertical thank you sentiment....
but it was just too big for the card....
so I had to use some letter rub ons....
my tiny roses were sprayed with 2 different Tattered Angel sprays....
the birds are a MS punch and the "vine" is a Cheery Lynn die....
 
and last but not least I want to share a picture of my darling little
"great" granddaughter that is 11 months old
Miss Paislie
this darling picture was taken by my photographer daughter
and no, I AM NOT old enough to be a great granny...LOL!!

I know what it's like to wake up at 4am ... sometimes earlier ... Think it's a woman thing ... Love your card and your gorgeous little mermaid!
