Sketch Challenge Card

If you want to see a truly beautiful and unique stamping style, check out She is a master at coloring in images--amazing stuff. I was browsing blogs today and came across a sketch challenge on her blog that I had to try. Usually I only showcase SU! products on this blog because I really feel that they are incredible. However, because I am new to this and haven't accumulated a large stash of papers and such, I decided to break my own rule a little bit on this one. Here is the sketch she provided:And here is my card--I really enjoyed this one. Lots of fun. And with so many pregnant people around, it won't be long until I can give it away!
The card base and matting for my image are Blush Blossom and Certainly Celery SU! cardstock. The patterned papers are from a set called "Nana's Nursery" by Die Cuts With a View. The flowers are from the wedding section at Michael's. They were originally a cream color and I sponged on some Certainly Celery and Regal Rose ink (I used the same colors on the stroller). The stroller is paper peiced with some of the DCWV paper. I finished it off with some faux stitching, some baubles (they come in a little plastic bottle at the scrapbook store) and some Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon. I love it! I think I'll keep it out on my desk for a while : )
