It's Friday!


Today's card is for this week's Blogger's Challenge (it's a sketch). I really think that Jessica's idea for "Forgotten Stamp Friday" is fantastic, so I found a stamp that is at least six month's old so that I could combine the two. Here is a picture of the sketch if you'd like to give it a try as well.

I started off with my "Forgotten Stamp". Her name is Rosie Posy and she is from Lili of the Valley. You can find her right here. Like my other LOTV stamps, she arrived last March in my birthday package to myself. Sadly, she has never seen ink. That is, until now! I paired this little sweetie with some Quite Contrary papers from My Mind's Eye. (Thanks Joanne! I just had to pull out my papers after I saw you use some of yours. You can see Joanne's darling creation here.) Her vest is paper pieced and she is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, E000, E11, E25, E27, R20, R81, R83, R85, Y32, Y35, YG63, YG67, and the Colorless Blender.) The Pink Pirouette panel was embossed in my Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots embossing folder. All of the panels were layered with black. Then I added some Star Dust Stickles to her bouquet, a Papertrey Ink black button. and some Baker's Twine from Niki's etsy shop to finish this one up.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today! I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. I'm fortunate enough to be heading to Right at Home Scrapbooking for another fabulous class with Joanne Basile! I had such a good time at Joanne's last class. I'm sure that this one will be just as wonderful! Enjoy your weekend...Toodles! :D

ETA: We are trying something new over at the Blogger's Challenge. If you would like to play along with our challenge, you may link your creation below and you'll also get to see what everyone else has come up with. Hope that you can join in the fun! :D
