{The Sweetest Things}

I've got a card share + video demo for you today!

I was inspired by a few different challenges (listed below) to make a special birthday card for my mom.  She really loves the "Cheeky" line of stamps from The Greeting Farm... as do I.  :)

I used "CHEEKY HOWDY" and I stamped her onto watercolor paper and colored her with Distress Inks.  I paper-pieced her hair with designer paper and then fussy-cut her out.

I added some Stardust Stickles to some of her clothes and the cherries in her hair.  Most of the elements on the finished card have a lot of sparkly Stickles coating them as well. The sentiment die cut/stamp set is by My Favorite Things. I made some cherries out of red buttons (MFT) and hung them from white cherry blossoms by I Am Roses.  I spritzed some white mulberry paper leaves (also from I Am Roses) with green and gold Shimmer Mists to give them some sparkle as well.

I really like how this card came together and I hope my mom will, too.  You can watch the coloring + paper piecing video {HERE} or down below:

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
