I found a new (to me) site for free digis. Called Dearie Dolls. They are so very very sweet. I am totally in love with them. So I am using this one with the kite for my card today. I paper pieced her and her kite. I wanted it fussy cut so I used bakers twine for the string. The rainbow and sun is a stencil I forgot I had, never used it. I used my distress inks, then kinda blended them and made a background from that. I added two button brads to her dress, actually just cut the brad part off and glued them on with glossy accents.
