Cool Beans!!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch over at The Sweet Shop, SSS31!! Today's sketch has a twist and you must using SEWING on your card! I LOVE this challenge since I can't seem to part with my sewing machine these days!

For my card, I started by stamping this UBER adorable Anya from The Greeting Farm (she was a limited edition 80's Anya that I do not think is available any longer!) and I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I colored her with Copic Markers and added Diamond Stickles to her bow (which was stamped twice, colored and then popped up on Foam Tape).

The sentiment, Cool Beans, is from Essential Sentiments from My Favorite Things, and I just think it's like, SO totally perfect with 80's Anya! LOL!!

The patterned paper is the yummy Poppy Field pattern from the Lemonade Collection by Basic Grey, and I pulled all of my colors right from the paper. The cardstock is all Prism, and I used Frosted Teal and Razzleberry Dark. I used a double ribbon of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon & Whisper White Organza Ribbon. I stitched each panel and then finished off my card with two brads by Basic Grey (gotta love how they match the patterned paper...I am ALL about that!!)
