MTSC85- Cherry Emma

Hi Mandi (hehe- my only follower thus far and coincidentally, my SIL:)
WhooHoo!! A post-a-day! I am meeting my goal (even though its only day #2, hehe)!!
Todays card was made using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.....I loved the layout, as I always seem to like cards with a round focal point. I seriously fell in love with this little girl with her cherry shirt when I saw her at the store, and bought her right there and then!! Seems like all my 'colouring' stamps are little girls...and I have 3 little boys? What gives? I think that companies need to start making more adorable little boy stamps for us mothers of boys! Maybe I should illustrate a few and try to sell them. I've got more than enough boys are the most adorable stinkers out there, and I'm not biased at all;) LOL!
Anyway, on with the card. I stamped her in memento tuxedo black (the ink that works the best with Copics- no smearing, bleeding, etc.) onto choice buttercream CS by Taylored Expressions and coloured her with my copics (thanks again Mandi for the birthday money that got me my first copics and hooked on them!). Then I cut her out, and paper pieced her lil pants with some dp. I popped her up on SU! dimensionals onto my spellbinders nesties (embossed and sponged with pink ink). The paper layers were all zig zag stitched together on my trusty old Janome sewing machine. I am all about the sewing on cards right now, and it's really not as time-consuming or as hard as one might think:). I used the RicRac die from MFT and embossed it with a SU! texture plate and my Bigshot ( I {heart} my bigshot and use it on darn near every project). To finish it all off I added a sunny yellow paper flower, and a pink button with twine bow! I really like the way it turned out!! The inside was pretty simple, just a little RicRac piece of dp and a punched sentiment~
