OCS & 2 Challenges

Hello, back here for another share. It's also going out in the mail today to my OCS partner, Kyoko, and I plan to use it for two challenges.
This is my first time participating in the One Card Swap with Linda and her friend's and I find that I am excited to be a part of it. This is a really terrific idea to meet new people and create lasting friendships. It's also a great way to share the craft that we all love.
My card is based on Linda's summer theme, I also cased a card based on the CA&F Monday Mania card casing challenge last week and lastly I altered two Greeting Farm images for Tamiko's Thursday challenge. I made a card instead of a 3-D project, the only 3-D image I have on my card is the large flower. I combined HG Peace with Fleur Anya. I think HG looks super cute with the dress instead of her usual shorts and Peace top. Although she looks cute in that outfit, I think she needed to look a little more grown-up for this card. Not too shabby. I used some fun dp from the TPC Studio Spring Break paper pack. These papers are so fun and I love their bright images, perfect for a summer card. I mounted all the images on to a bright orange Tsugumi card from Hanko Designs.
Here are the challenges I'm going to use this card for:
1. CA&F Mystery Monday Rimna card casing
2. Tamiko's altering a Greeting Farm image and use on a card or 3-D project.
