Bring on the Flowers -- for Whoopsi Daisy

It's a busy Monday for me, and an exciting one! Today is my first post for the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge blog.  The images are adorable, and the team has proven very helpful and easy going, so I think this is going to be FUN!
This week's theme is all about flowers, so I chose an image that had flowers in it.  This is from Sheet 541, found in the Whoopsi Daisy Shop, and I colored it with Copic markers.

Signs of Fall are everywhere in NW WI, so I wanted a late summer, early fall feel to this card.  The leaves are starting to turn on this tree, and the flowers look similar to those I see on my daily walks.  That sweet girl and dog are basking in the last of the summer sun.  The sentiment is a stamp from Great Impressions stamps. Designer Papers are from My Mind's Eye.  I used 2 different Spellbinders dies on this card.  The chipboard flowers are from Piccolo, with Stickles on top.  The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. It is the Seasons Bundle.
I have two other posts today, too, so don't miss those.  I'm having them go live at various times throughout the day.  Check back!
For more great Whoopsi Daisy inspiration, tune in next Monday.  And, don't forget to enter the Throw on those Flowers challenge. You have all week!
