This is the first time I've joined a sketch challenge, and I've had a lot of fun giving it a try! My card is based on Makeesha's sketch here.
My card ended up with a bit of a country feel.
Using the A Little Bit of Happiness hostess set, I stamped and embossed the image, then coloured it with the Watercolour Wonder Crayons, in the Rich Regal colours. Then I matched the image with cardstock in Close to Cocoa, Rose Red, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Old Olive, most of them distressed on the edges with their matching ink colours. I stamped the polkadots from the Polka Dots & Paisley set on the Brocade Blue piece.
But my favourite part was making the cute scallop frame. First I punched a 1 1/4" circle on a piece of Old Olive card, then punched the Scallop Circle punch over that, centering it over the circle I had already punched. I adhered it with scraps of dimensionals.
In the top right corner it was looking a little empty, so I sprinkled some hearts from the Sprinkles set!
