Sugar and spice....

Hello crafty peeps! I have another card to share. This one is super special, as it's my first commissioned card! Woot! Woot! One of my neighbors needed a card for her granddaughter, who is turning 4 soon. The only things she gave me to work with was that she has red hair, wears a lot of pink, and to possibly incorporate a nursery rhyme on the card. That last one was a doosie. Here's what I came up with:

I was able to get the nursery rhyme in on the inside:

I wasn't sure if my neighbor was going to like this, but thankfully, she LOVED it! (Major boost to my ego!) 

Since I used a Bugaboo stamp, I'm going to enter this at their Anything Goes challenge. Ok, now to get ready and do some grocery shopping. I hope you all have a great day!
