Girly Card with a Spring Feel

This design is inspired by the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. I had planned to make an Easter themed card with this image, but changes happened during the making process (as is often the case), so it turned out a bit different, but I think it has a spring feel to it, with the blue colors and the barefoot girl.

I used DPs from Maja Design to make this card, some light blue paper for the scalloped border and clouds, and a piece of kraft to make the frame.
I used 4 different sets of dies: Memory Box cloud dies and birds dies, a Magnolia die for the scalloped border and Sizzix dies for the rounded tag shapes.
I machine stitched around the edges of the card base with silver thread and I also added some pearls to the border. I didn't put a sentiment on as I would like the keep my options open.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Sketch Saturday - #249 Sketch
2) Di's Digis Designs - All about Children
3) Delicious Doodles - Use Die Cuts
4) 4 Crafty Chicks - #132 Die for Dies
5) The Squirrel and The Fox - #39 Autumn or Spring (Spring)
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
