{MFTWSC23} Rose

Wow- I actually feel kind of sad that my spot as Guest DT is over:( It has been a very busy and chaotic time in my stamping room and my husband is on the verge of filing for divorce because of all the time I've spent stamping..the only thing holding us back is that neither one of us wants custody of the kids...kidding!!! (kinda)
So this is my last official post as a temporary member of the team:( *sniff sniff* But I guess this house isn't gonna clean itself (I know cuz I've waited it out for a LONG time and nothing ever happens) and the kids apparantly need fed (something about social services stepping in??)...so on with regular life.
This is a great sketch to end on though, and I'll definately keep playing along with the other civilians out there;)
Here is the sketch:
And here is my card....I opted for a ribbon treatment other than the banner strip, but other than that, it's pretty spot on the sketch! Oh yeah, I mirrored it as well....

I used the new PI, Rose. I coloured her with copics, paper-piecing her little dress and adding some shadow to it. Added a bit of sakura pink glitter pen to her sleeve ruffles, heart and barrette, and added a tiny rhinestone to her shoe. I have a love of redheads and freckles, to that's how I did her up, using a prismacolor pencil to give her 'spots'. I even freak about colouring little flowers, such as this rose, but I gave it my best;) As you can see, it's 'outside the box' or oval, in this case! I combined this challenge with The Color Throwdowns colours from last week, pumpkin, melon and celery. The polka dot ribbon and enamel rose embellie are SU, as well as some retired paper that I am sadly getting to the end of the pack on:( I used MFT's simply scallops border dienamic as well.



For the inside, I kept the scallop theme going, added some more ribbon and the sentiment panel in an oval as well, applying rhinestones along the edge.

Thanks for popping by!! Check out the MFT forum over at SCS for more details on how to play this week!
