Sketch Saturday *51*

Well I got to squeeze in another card since hubby is working later than expected and we have such dreary weather!! (Plus I have all these adorable stamps!!!) There is a pretty sketch over at Sketch Saturday and I got it down in time instead of a day late! I needed to make a card for a 6 year old girl so went I with these papers again and kept it more bright as opposed to my previous vintagey one. The colors are just so pretty! I adore this image as well and I had fun coloring in her fruity dress with my twinkling h20's. I also outlined the image in them as well! It is very sparkly! The sentiment is also from the WOJ Summer kit.

Paper: My Mind's Eye 'Pretty Please'
Ink: Distress Inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: Pearls ~ Melissa Frances, buttons and twine ~ stash

Well I am off to go dress shopping!! (UGH) But it seems I am not the only one that feels this way! I seen a pretty green one at the Calvin Klein outlet store but I have to take hubby along for a second opinion. The girls don't really help as they say I look beautiul in everything!! (They are sweet but it gets frustrating especially when I really look like a 5 lb sauage in a 2 lb bag!! LOL)
Anyways thanks so much for visiting and I hope everyone has a fabulous week-end!
