Sketch and (almost) Color Challenge

Hello, everyone!

Today I decided to tackle both the Sketch Challenge and Color Challenge in one card. It wasn't until I finished the card that I realized I used Really Rust instead of Ruby Red!! Oh well, I like it anyway! :) I used How Sweet It Is from My Favorite Things. When you're in love with chocolate like I am, this is a must-have set! *lol* I used my favorite Fall Flowers paper again --I hope you're not tired of seeing it yet! I paper pieced her dress, but everything else is stamped in Stazon Timber Brown and colored with an aquapainter and inks. I doodled some frames around the images and did some freehand machine stitching around the card front. A clip and ribbon complete the card.

Don't forget to head over to All That Scraps -- The Little Bit Kits were released today!! I'll have more Lucky and Lulu projects to share with you in the next few days. Check out the other Design Team members' blogs and galleries to see what they've done -- you won't be disappointed! :)
