Sweet Sunday Well Wishes

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC82. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

I needed a masculine get well card for a friend of ours and this sweet Pure Innocence girl, Better Get Better, from MFT was calling out to get inky.

I used my new Cosmo Cricket Wanted mini deck for a masculine feel, plus the woodgrain paper is perfect for our friend because he's a contractor. The image is coloured entirely with copics and I added a smidge of sparkle with a Spica glitter pen. It took all my willpower not to add rhinestones between the scallops on the open scallop border...gotta try and keep it masculine, after all! Oooh, I should have used cork for the open scallop...doh...why can't I think of these things while I'm working on the project, not once it's all finished? I figured a little sewing was ok though, along with some twill ribbon, tied in a knot. I love how the buttons add a nice accent but they blend into the background paper so nicely really makes the sweet PI girl the star of the show!

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's Blog. Now let's hop over and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created.
