What is Black and White, and Pink all over???

Remember that old joke kids used to tell..."What is black and white and red all over?"...well I switched it a little and went with pink...the answer this time...my card I have for you today! I started by stamping off the little girl image called Picking Dandelions from Biblical Impressions Stamps. I then stamped her again on the pink PP so I could paper piece her dress. Next, I added a little bit of color to her skin, hair, socks, and the flowers. Then I cut the image using my cutting system from CM. I picked some black and white papers from Echo Park, and began layering things. I layered the girl image onto some PP with words. Then I layered everything onto the polka dot papers. For the sentiment, I cut a strip from the same PP collection. Notice the little tiny pink on that too.

Well that is all from me for now. I must go take care of a "situation" in my DD's bedroom. I went in to see if the rain was coming in the windows, and found a big wet spot. BUT...the wet spot was not near the window. I starting quizzing the girls to see who spilled something, meanwhile I feel a drop on my shoulder. I look up, and there is a big wet spot dripping. ARRRGGGGG!!!! A quick call to the hubby, and he is on his way home. SO I have the girls getting everything out of the way, so daddy can hopefully fix the problem. I don't' know where it is coming from...there isn't a water line there that I know of, and this isn't on the top floor! I also have my oldest checking under her bed (which is filled with who knows what...lol) since it is right above the spot. It is always something!

This card is for the following challenge:
