...With a Bounce in My Step

Hi, everyone!
I am awake early today - 5:00am! Wow! So, I decided to sit down and create quietly in my room, trying not to disturb my poor, ailing hubby that is sleeping on the couch. :0( He's been kicked in the butt by a nasty virus this week, and has been sawing logs on the couch for three days and nights. I offered to let him go upstairs to bed, but he insists he's happy right where he is. So be it! I will just try to keep quiet, doing what I like to do best! lol!
Today I played with an Elisabeth Bell image, and am so excited to be entering her into the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge that is being sponsored by Elisabeth Bell this week! Here is the sketch I had to follow:

And here is my Elisabeth Bell card!

(Click Image to Enlarge)

I super duper LOVE my Daisy rubber stamp, and when Elisabeth drew this darling Little Rapunzel, which is very similar to Daisy, and offered her as a digi, I jumped on the chance to buy her! I colored my image in with PSE. My papers are old Sizzix Sizzlits papers from my stash. I added some lace, a few Prima Flowers and some brads. Lots of layers of paper on this little cutie!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! As part of the Bugaboo DT, I have another Sweet sketch Wednesday coming up later this month! Bugaboo will be sponsoring them, so be sure to check back with me in a couple weeks for another great sketch. :0) Happy Crafting!

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
