It's Saturday!

Good Morning Friends! I'm running a little bit behind on some of my favorite Friday challenges. I've been trying to fight off a cold and I'm afraid that it has won! Thankfully, I'm not cooking for Easter Sunday. Hopefully, I'll be better to head back to school on Monday. I combined a few challenges on this card. This week's Blogger's Challenge is to use ribbon or lace. I pulled out this sweet Pure Innocence image from My Favorite Things. The image and sentiment are from the Don't Open Until set. I've had it in my collection for some time now, but I just haven't had the chance to use it. It was perfect for Jessie's Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge. I used the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club and then went from there. She is colored up with Copic Markers (BG10, BG11, BG32, E000, E00, E01, E35, E57, E59, G21, G24, R20, R29, and R59) and her dress is paper pieced. I used some October Afternoon patterned papers and some Papertrey Ink card stock. The button is also from PTI. I accented that with some cream craft thread. Some Hero Arts lace and a bit of stitching complete the from of my card. I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card and I added a little bit more of the October Afternoon polka dots and I used the MFT Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip to finish it off.

Thank you SO much for stopping by for a visit today. I'm off to get some rest and then check out all of the creations that my Blogging friends have come up with. Enjoy your weekend and have a Happy Easter...Toodles! :D
