Chiara and Mummy do Cute Daisy May

I'm back with another challenge card which I actually made last night but blogger wouldn't let me upload it!! Was nearly an hour to get my post this morning uploaded! If it wasn't a DT card I would of gave up!
Anyway I have missed a few of the Daisy May challenges, so I really wanted to get one done this week. I did do one last week but the challenge was gems and because I use gems a lot, I combined it with another challenge. So this one is especially for Cute Daisy May lol.

My youngest Daughter Chiara who is 4 helped me with this card. So obviously it had to be orange because it's her favourite colour but I tried to tone it down a bit so you didn't need shades to look at it!
I followed the sketch at Cute Daisy May but Chiara had to add flowers and swirls because she loves using my swirl punch as it's huge so I let her use her feet to push it down. Of course we went a bit overboard but that's what she wanted so I just went along with it. I'm quite impressed though, she knew exactly where she wanted the flowers and placed the swirls on too without it looking too bad lol.
The spotty paper was a piece I had left over but can't remember where it came from. The other side of it was the green I have used on the middle strip and the swirls. I know the orange paper is the reverse side of a Cosmo Cricket paper though :)
Flowers are Prima and spacers from ebay. Sentiment is from a Christmas See-d's set and of course I coloured with my copics.
I'm off now for a bit of bloghopping while the girls are watching the telly and I have some peace. Don't know how long that will last though!

Hi Lora, your card is super cute, this image with the poodle coloured in brown reminds me of my brown poodle hudson, unfortunately I'm not as cute as Daisy. I recognise your face , have you designed for any card mags, I seem to remember you doing some cotton rabbit cards ? janex
