WTG Harvesting Girl

Every month My Favorite Things has a challenge where the prize is the following month's stamp release and a spot as the Guest Design team member.  This month the challenge theme is Floral Flair and this is my stab at it.
I used the Who That's Girl stamp that was in this month's VIP package.  Also from that pack are the black cs card base, the black and white ribbon, the mesh ribbon and the Basic Grey dp.  I used for the dp for the bottom layer of the card and to paper piece WTG's blouse.  By the way the body of the blouse, the sleeve and the cuff of the sleeve were each stamped and pieced separately.  Sometimes when you paper piece an item of clothing it has a funny flat and unnatural look if you just stamp it once.  Usually on clothing the prints don't line up that way, occasionally a really good seamstress will match plaid lines at seams but rarely do floral prints get matched.  But I digress...
This stamp set didn't come with a flower stamp for inside the basket so to go along with the theme I dug out some old Jolee stickers to put inside and I hung a rose charm off of the bow in the mesh ribbon.
Because the card was made on a black card stock base I finished off the inside.  It's not particularly fancy but to go with the floral theme I punched the edge of the card stock with a Martha Stewart Hydrangea border punch. 

Here's the deets:
