First Day Hello

I made this for My Favorite Things sketch challenge 34 and the Free For All challenge at Splitcoaststampers to use something stacked on your card - I stacked four layers of daisies.   This is for a little girl to give to her teacher on the first day of school.  I always loved starting school with all the new books, pencils, paper and other school supplies!  My passion for paper goods probably started right there! 
The red gingham ribbon is colored with Y21 copic ink so that it would match the distressing of the rest of the card.  The little dress is paper pieced.
Other supplies include:
My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Apple for You, Say What
Marianne Creatables flower die
Martha Stewart leaf punch
October Afternoon dp
SU Real Red, Yoyo Yellow cardstock
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four

Ooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhh, she is just such a doll, all dressed up in her paper-pieced dress! All primary little ones should be loving their first experiences in school .... and she definitely would steal her teacher's eye! Darling work, dear Bridget!
