Sketch Saturday #255

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful

Boy have I been poorly recently and not in the least bit motivated to craft or blog.  So I'm very sorry that I haven't been visiting my friends.  Please don't abandon me.   Thankfully, I am finally feeling better and this week's sketch is so lovely - it was perfect to get my Mojo out of it's funk.  
All of the papers are My Minds Eye Lost and Found Blush.  I replaced the banner in the sketch with an  EK Success punched row of buttons and added a miniature thread spool button embellishment and an LOTV sentiment which just happens to be the exact shape of the motif on the paper. There is also a little safety pin button poking out from behind my sentiment. A Memory box die cut bow in the corner perfectly mimics the bow on the waist of the dress form in the picture.

There is lots of lovely inspiration on our blog and I just know that my teamies would love a visit from you to their own blogs.  Why not come and play along with us?

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
There She Goes "Just because"
Tuesday Throwdown "Focus on the Sentiment"

I love how you've utilised the dress form on the paper - you could have stamped it and it couldn't have been more perfect!And the sentiment too! Lovely details,especially the little black corner bow! Hugs, Juliex
