Beary Sweet Challenge 25 - Sketch

Happy Sunday Morning to you all.  I hope you have been having a wonderful weekend and the sun is shining wherever you are.

It's the first of the month and that means it is time for a new challenge at The Beary Scrap.  It's a sketch, and a fabulous one at that.  I have decided to challenge myself to make the time to participate at least twice a month.  My ultimate goal is to participate every week.  For now I'm just going to keep my goals obtainable.  I so miss my craft space since the shop has taken up residence there.  I've been working off the dining room table and still digging through bins to find my supplies.  One thing I can say is that it feels SO GOOD to be creating again.  I realized that I was missing a HUGE part of me since November when I had everything boxed up and no place to work.  When I sit down with some papers, stamps, markers... I feel back at home again.  It's like food for the soul!

This week I am also joined by my little princess Lindsay.  She's home with me, so Mommy can't create anything without her working side by side with me. 

Now for my card...

My image is another Magnolia stamp.  She's been colored with Copic.  I don't remember the colors I used.  I got a little carried away with the stamping around the image, but I really like the concept.  The accent stamp is from Bo Bunny's Midnight frost stamp pack.  Again, I am using papers from My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy 2 line.  I just love these papers and the colors are so perfect for spring and summer. All my papers are distressed, inked up with distress ink and sewn.  I used a piece of corrugated board and pained that up with some antique linen acrylic paint and more distress ink.  I used a piece of Leandro Blue seam binding.  Flowers are both Prima and Beary Scrap Mulberry Paper Flowers.  I attached a few beads to my stick pins and added a cute heart charm that I found in my stash.  Lastly, I added some lace and a few KaiserCraft Pearls.  

And here is Lindsay's Card.  I helped with sizing her paper cuts, but she did most of the work.
Lindsay used another adorable image from Magnolia.  She's been colored with coloring pencils.  I made a bow for her out of some ribbons she picked out of my bin.  Papers are from My Mind's Eye Laundry Line collection.  Very simply, but she's only 4 and she loves to see her cards posted on my blog.  She's going to need one of her own soon. :)

Here is the sketch we are working with.

I will be entering my card at the following Challenges:
