Sweet Sunday Flurry

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC46. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
I simply couldn't wait any longer to ink up one of my Pure Innocence girls from MFT. Seriously, how can anyone resist these little dolls!!!

And guess what...I have enough Christmas cards for this year so I'm already starting on my cards for next year. How stinkin' cool is that! Now, who knows when I'll actually get them in the mail this year, but they're all made...wooo hooo!!!!

I mostly followed the sketch with this card, but I just couldn't put my circle off-center like the sketch showed. I tried and tried, but it kept sliding back to the center...wink! I stamped Flurry of Love with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White, twice. I coloured one of the images with copics, cut it out and adhered it with foam tape to the base image. I added some white Liquid Applique to her hat and boots and sprinkled some glitter over it before I heated it. I also glittered the falling snow behind her and added three Tiny Twinkles to her jacket.

The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Be Merry. I layered it with Baja Blue, pink and Prism Blush Red Dark. A little stitching and some buttons added just the right detail.

Let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch. I wonder if I'm the only one who just couldn't do the off-center circle. ;)

ETA: Apparently I went awry on this sketch even more than I realized. My printer must have cut off the bottom of the sketch when I printed it because I thought the center square was lined up with the bottom of the base...sigh. So definitely go see the REAL SKETCH on Karen's blog! Hopefully I'll have better luck next week!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Too cute Karen!! I love how you popped her up on dimensional tape and the coloring is amazing! Love your take on the sketch, even if your computer made it difficult on you, LOL!

Karen, this turned out darling, even if you didn't follow the sketch to the T! I think the only way I could off center that circle is with a big old bow, just like Karen did:)) Man, that little image sure is cute and colored so perfectly to match your paper. Love the liquid applique on the hat and boots. I can't really see the glitter on the top of the liquid applique, so I was wondering how that worked? I never thought of trying that, but I will now. Thanks for the inspiration!
