I just love the MFT dies and stamps. This little cutie is Cute-a-tude.  I paper pieced her dress with a part of the DP.  I also used the paper to make the flower.  The flower is a die from MFT.  I used the sketch from the challenge over at Totally Papercrafts.  Here it is:

I like to play the sketch challenges as I sometimes have a hard time deciding what I want to do with a card and this way they give you a layout, but I can make changes to it to suit me as I have here.  The basic sketch is still there with just a few changes or additions.  The designer paper is from my stash.  It has got to be about two years old.  The blue I think is SU and the yellow I don't know.  The buttons are SU and I think they are probably about a year old.  I tried to use up some of my stash.  And with paper that is a lot.  I tend to buy it when I have plenty at home.  The oval dies are Spellbinder and the flower is MFT die-namics.
