{WSC} Whats Up Sunshine?

hey there! I am loving these weekly sketch challenges from MFT! Especially since Mercy has stopped with the Tuesday sketches and Jen's SFYYT is now monthly- I need me a weekly sketch to keep my mojo going:)
I used MFT's In the Garden Jolinne. I coloured her with copics, paper pieced her dress, and drew in some grass. The flower pot was stamped twice and popped up on dimesnionals. I cut her out with a nestie and sponged the edges with soft sky ink. I sewed around all the panels with a row of wonky stitching. There is a little strip of die cut grass behind Jolinne that you can't really see very well. I also cut out a sun with MFT's dienamics and used that in place of the sketches snowflake. I used some yummy green bakers twine from The Twinery and did a double loopy bow thingy behind the big button, which I affixed to the card using hot glue. It's the best for glueing bug and bulky embellishments to a card. I cut the sentiment with a spellbinders tag die and inked the edges.  I moved the sentiment tag to the bottom where it seemed to fit better. I combined the words from a few of the sentiments to make my own cute little phrase 'Whats Up Sunshine' and used the question mark from the PI Bon Voyage set.

 I love the sentiments that come with this set...especially this one that I used in the inside of this card. Isn't it sweet?! I used the same crazy stitching and the same dp that I paper peiced her dress with on the front. Well, thats about it!
Thanks for stopping by!
