Sweet Sunday Sketch #118

Happy Sunday!!! I hope you've had a FABULOUS week.. it's time of course for another Sweet Sunday Sketch!!! I LOVED working with this one... perhaps it's because I think my MOJO has FINALLY returned!!.. It seemed to have gone into early retirement for a while... BUT... a BIG SU! COnvention has excited it enough to FINALLY come out!! YAY!!

Sooo.. here is my card for today's sketch:-


And here is the fabulous sketch for you to play along with:-


I've used my NEW Sew Suite stamp set today and gone a little bit girly vintage!!!
I'm SO pleased with how it turned out.. its not often an "IDEA" makes it to "CARD" and actually turns out as I'd planned.. so yep.. MAJOR happy dance going on here!!! hahaha

I thought it would be fun to make a little Vintage Lace skirt using my Victoria Crochet Trim and then made a little belt with some Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon with a little Pearl Jewel as the buckle and of course a little Pearl necklace.

Instead of scallops I made a lace ruffle and added another little Early Espresso 'belt" with a little Espresso bow.. which was made by colouring my retired Kraft (Crumb Cake) Taffeta Ribbon with my SU! Marker!! and because I was SO impatient I actually made the bow first and then coloured it in... see.. now waiting for it to dry!!! LOVE that!!! :D

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stamper's have some AMAZING cards to show you too... sooooo... off you go.. go visit them and be INSPIRED:-

And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.
