I made this card for the current sketch challenge over on the {MY FAVORITE THINGS} blog.  I was recently lucky enough to win one of their $100 gift certificates (dude, I know...) and I promptly placed my order.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on some newly released and new-to-me MFT goodies!

This week's sketch is truly fantastic and one I'll be revisiting time and time again, no doubt.  It became an instant classic in my book.

I used a couple of products from Papertrey Ink (New Leaf cardstock and Pretty Pastels Patterned Paper) and the rest are from My Favorite Things: Kraft cardstock, Sweet Tooth cardstock, Sour Apple button, Pinking Edge Circle Stax, Die-Namics Sentiment Strips, Die-Namics File Folder Edges (recently sent to me by this lovely lady... thanks, Tammy!) and the little cutie Pure Innocence Being Cute Is What I Do clear stamp.

I stamped her onto watercolor paper and water colored her with Distress Inks.  I added a few highlights with a white ink gel pen.

I had so much fun making this card!  It's amazing how quickly things come together with a great sketch as inspiration and some amazing products on hand.  :)

Thanks for visiting!
