So Sketchy- Thinking of You

Another card based on another fab sketch over at So Sketchy! I adore this little Tulip Girl image from the Saturday Evening Post at Cornish Heritage Farms. She reminds me of my daughter as she looks like she has got her bottom lip sucked in:) So sweet.

The background panels were all stamped using Ornamental Beauty scrapblock also at CHF. I then cut the stamped piece apart. I embossed the pink card base and used the reverse side, so the de-embossed side, for a softer look. The little girl is colored with Prisma Pencils and I hand stitched with embrodiery thread around the oval Nesite frame. The middle flower was die cut out of velum, wrinkled and inked and the other two flowers are silk hydrangeas. I finished it with a few QuickKuts flourishes. I hope you have a lovely day!
