My Favorite Things Guest Designer Contest

It is time once again for the My Favorite Things guest designer contest. I just had to throw my hat in the ring once again. :o)  You can find all of the information on how you can play along for a chance to work with the amazing MFT design team and win over $200 in MFT products on the MFT forum. Here is the sketch for this month's contest. Isn't it fab!

I stamped the image from the  Cute is What I Do stamp set with Tuxedo Black, Memento ink, colored her with Copics, and paper pieced her adorable outfit using paper from Recollections and Bazzill. I masked off a portion of one of the sentiment stamps in the Cute is What I Do set to stamp "cute" on the tag. I added Grosgrain Bubblegum ribbon, and Razzle Berry buttons. I added a fancy flourish using the Fancy Flourish Die-namics.  

 
I added pink pearls to her pigtails. I also added a pearl to the center of the small bow. I added a mint green rhinestone to the tag and pink rhinestones as an accent on the card. I layered a few plastic flower embellishments together to add to her shirt and finished the flower off with a drop of Pearl Ex. The lace is from my stash.

 
 

I am playing in the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: buttons and bows
Simon Says Stamp: paper piecing
Anything Goes Challenge: buttons and bows
Inky Chicks: bingo (ribbon, image, pearls)
Papertake Weekly: add a bow
Cutie Pie Challenge: 3 different textures
Totally Stampalicious: paper piecing

Thank you to everyone who posted comments and sent me e-mails regarding the passing of my ex MIL. Your thoughts, prayers, and kind words mean more than you know. As hard as this week has been for those of us she left behind, I am happy that her suffering is over.

Hi Tonya
Hope you are doing OK so to speak. Thinking of you :)
Great sketch and I love your take on it. Brilliant choice of papers, perfectly paper pieced image and that lace looks very familiar (LOL).
