Lil Duck

Made this card in March so that I could have my post up and ready on time.
Been hither and yon the last two weeks and it's great to be home.
Got home last night and had a great time with friends.
Daisy Doodles Challenge's theme is Easter Fun.
Get creative and make whatever you think Easter fun is for you.
Would love to see a Daisy Doodles image, but it doesn't have to be.
I have liked this 'Lil Duck' since the get go.
You can find him in the Daisy Doodle Store in the Easter section.
The background is a 12 x 12 glossy printed paper that I cut up to get the sky and grass like I wanted.
Paper pierced the clouds and horizon, used the sewing machine around the edges, made the flower stem using floss and some crewel stitches, and used floss, too, to tie knots and make the center of the button/flower.. The sun is yellow gingham DP to go with the ribbon.
Happy Easter to every one that takes the time to stop by and see my latest.
Thanks for coming by!
