Sketch Saturday #220

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful
I chose this absolutely gorgeous Mo Manning image called "Kisses" which you can find here and I'm entering my card into the challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil for "Love is all around".  I coloured my image with Copics and added a little Prisma pencil for the leaves and stems of her bouquet.  The dress is paper pieced, and raised fuller at the skirt with silicone, using wonderful Lost and Found papers by My Mind's Eye which were also used for the background.  I had a dress in a similar fabric when I was small and I loved it.   It's not very noticeable in the photo but I gave my little girl some real tulle petticoats beneath the skirt of her dress.  The sentiments are Word processed, cut with a Nestie die.  Flowers are Recollections and the leaves are the corners of a Leane Creatief die.
And here's a closeup of my image but you can left click on any of the photos to enlarge them.  I am additionally entering my card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations 175 "Anything Goes"
Crafts and Me 96 "Use a Digi" 
No Matter Which 1 "Anything Goes" 
DP2 147 "Love is All Around"

Check out the super makes by the other Saturdays and come and play along with our fab sketch this week.

Hi Lesley, you made comment there is a security warning on my blog, I asked some people to pop on over to my blog and they didn't get the warning, so beats me. I can assure you my blog is quite safe. A pity if you don't do the hop. Hugz Suzanne

This is so sweet, Lesley! I love the colors, and the dimension on the paper-pieced dress is so perfect!

I have a set of clear Christmas stamps from Inkadinkado that I'm giving away to a random commenter on my blog. No strings attached, but I'd love it if you'd follow me!
