Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags, and Scallop Rolled Roses on a cheery Hello card

Hi again, tonight after making dinner, I headed into the craft room, and struggled (a lot!) to make a card I was happy with... but, eventually I succeeded...
I started off knowing I wanted to use the newest sketch from Card Pattens, but little else. I didn't know what I wanted to go in the circle element, what colours, embellishments or even stamps that I wanted to use... So, after a bit of experimenting, I decided to colour this darling little girl from My Favourite Things, and paper pieced her top. I then figured as I'd paper pieced, I knew I could enter it in to The Lollipop Ladies challenge, so I took inspiration from the cupcakes, pulled out some Crumbcake card stock, made a card base layered some Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise for a fun colour palette, while not being the same as those in the cupcakes gives me the same fun impression... I rolled some scallop roses, and one out of a circle, which I have posted a tutorial to here, and cut out a little leaf using the Bigshot and Little Leaves sizzlet. I used Tiny Tags and matching punch to create a sentiment and popped it just behind the roses, peeking out. A row of rhinestones finished off this card nicely... I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Stamptember hop!
Thanks for dropping by, 
Happy Stamping!
