Prada Bags

I've been having one great crafty time. I've colored so many images lately just to practice my technique and to have images that are ready to go. I'm also having a great time with sketches. In the past I've struggled with sketches but now I get it. I love sentiments. Once I find one I like I then try to imagine an image that will work well with it. Next I choose sketch and a 6 x 6 paper pack, and voila'!

I love, love, love this card. When I saw this sentiment I immediately knew this image and no other would work. The image is from Jackson Expressions. I colored it with Copic markers and cut with a Dienamics Round Stitched die. I started with the sketch from the Digi Sketch Challenge. The base is Kraft cardstock. To keep with the "stitched theme," using my sewing machine, I stitched around each of the base elements. The papers American Crafts Dots and Strips and My Mind's Eye "In Bloom" paper pad. The sentiment was cut with Frantic Stampers "ticket" die set. The flowers are from my stash two of which I cut using the Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" distress ink to add a vintage feel. Finally I added foam dots and bling but in my world, no card is complete without it!
