Too Cute - Sketchabilities Challenge

It's the end of the month, that means it time for another Sketchabilities challenge! Here is the fabulous sketch by Karan Gerber...
I used a mirror image of the sketch as it better suited the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline papers I was using. Here is what I came up with...
This is a picture of my daughter Colette (who thinks she was the cutest baby ever). We decided to try a Minnesota State Fair outing  with the girls but Colette was still too little for the rides. She had to sit in the stroller and watch her older sister. So while I snapped a couple dozen pics of her sister on the rides, I only managed to take a few pics of her. I am thoroughly enjoying this Sweet Caroline Dolled Up collection. Love the vibrant pinks, yellows, and blues against the weathered wood. Here are some close-ups....
I painted the wooden butterfly and then applied rub-ons.
I added a few Epiphany Crafts flower buttons (wanted to try out my newest toy).
I hope you will play along with us at Sketchabilities! I would love to see your take on the sketch.
