Sweet Stop Sketch 95

It's SKETCH time over on the Sweet Stop Blog. Hop on over there and check out what beautiful cards the Sugar Babies have to show you today.



For my card, I used this sweet Magnolia image that my friend Lori stamped for me (thanks, girlie!). I added some stardust Stickles to Tilda's sleeve and lacey hem. I also added some white paint pen accents to their cheeks and on their shoes. The two paper buttons in the lower left corner, the "hugs" sentiment, and scalloped kraft rectangle are all up on foam tape. I threaded hemp twine through most of the paper buttons. The pomegranate one in the upper right-hand corner has a strip of the DP threaded through it.



Enjoy your Saturday!

Hi Denise, love your very sweet card. So beautifully coloured and love how you did the buttons - esp. how you put the strip of dp through one of them (happy sigh}. I think I will dig out my Eskimo Kisses papers now that I've seen your card. I bought them (you know - HAD to have them!!) but didn't use them as I couldn't get my head around the colours for Christmas cards. Thanks for helping me use my...ahem...fairly large stash of dp's ;-)
