Special Delivery!

Hi All! And a very Happy Saturday to you!  I'm back with another Fun Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. Yay! This was another fun one for me, cause I took one look at the sketch and new exactly which image I would use, it's one from A Day for Daisies that I had been wanting to color up for a while now.. 8-)  So without further delay.... Here is the Sweet Stop Sketch #118  for this week:

And here's my take on it.. I did tweak it just a tiny bit though by putting my vertical ribbon embellie behind my image instead of on top...

Well I printed out my Darling Little girl and her puppies from A Day for Daisies onto Flourishes Classic White and and colored them up with my trusty Copics ( of  I did a little paper piecing for her Sweet little jumper using some super pretty Vintage Whimsy dp's by TheGirls Paperie that I also used for my BG panels and then matted everything up with some kraft CS from my stash.  I created my Big fluffy clouds using a cloud template, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, but this time instead of using a small sponge, I used a small stenciling brush... I think they turned out a lot better than my last attempt at clouds.. lol.. So looks like I'll be using this technique for my clouds from this point forward.. 8-) And that's pretty much it, I popped up my Darling image with some dimensionals, stamped my Flourishes Sentiment using Memento Rich Cocoa directly onto my BG, added a bit of green gingham ribbon from my stash and a sweet vintage brad to top it all off.
Sure hope you can play along with us, can't wait to see what you all come up with.  And please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies Beautiful creations!
