Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Sketch

As I type this (a few days ahead of schedule...I'll be horse'n around [at a horse show] when this posts) they SHOULD be setting my house today (fingers crossed and small prayers said), so I'm all giddy with excitement and am watching the clock here at work so I can go home and take a's killing me ya know! LOL...

Anyway, THIS week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we have this lovely sketch below...and what a super fun sketch it is! I love all the possibilities this sketch has! I had a hard time just deciding WHAT I was gonna do (and I'm working with LIMITED SUPPLIES ...thankfully this time around...LOL), but after looking through all my image swaps I settled on this adorable Magnolia in her cherry jumper...isn't she just the cutest? And I've had this cherry paper for.evah! I was hoarding it...I'm such a hoarder...and then I have such a hard time actually USING it because gosh, it's soooo pretty...LOL...what if I want to use it later...LOL...I'm so silly sometimes! Anyway, it was the PERFECT accompaniment to my Magnolia that I HAD to use it!
I started my card with my Kraft cardstock base, I really wanted the colors to pop! It took me a long, long time to decide that yes, aqua and cherry red really DO look good together (even thought this color combo has been around awhile, I'm slow to jump on that color train...LOL). I cut my cherry paper out and added the Apron Lace border in red to it. I then cut out my rectangle in red and backed it in aqua and added my Magnolia who I colored in with Copics and cut out, I pop dotted her off her perch slightly. I then stamped and cut out with my nestabilities my sentiment and added my cherry red rhinestones and their stems (actually a Martha Stewart leaf I cut down and placed appropriately). I'm so glad you could join me today, I can't wait to show you my new scrap room....oooohhhhh.... my move in date is getting closer....I'm itching to move here!
