Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge 51

I am LOVING the new Sugar Nellie digital images. I had to have all of them - so splurged last week to get them. Tonight I am participating (as well as hostessing) a Virtual Stamp Night at SplitCoast Stampers and one of the challenges was to paper piece an image. Well, I decided to see how it would work out to use one of the new digital images for this challenge. I printed out the image on plain white cardstock and then printed again on two different patterned paper. I wanted to use the Sketch over on the Sugar Bowl so that I could enter this card in the challenge there. I REALLY like the way this one turned out.I started with Real Red as my base and then used the Love Impressions DSP. I matted this paper on Pretty in Pink as well as the base. I wrapped the pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon around the sentiment piece and then ran my scallop circle through my cuttlebug using the heart embossing folder. I then sponged around the edges with Real Red ink. I added flowers from Wild Orchid Craft. My little girl is colored with Prisma color pencils on her face, hair and shoes. I then took the two different DSP papers that I had printed the image on and cut the pants from one and placed these directly on the image. I then cut the shirt out and placed this on my image with mini dimensionals. I like the 3-D effect this whole card gives off.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at this card - it is one of my favorites so far.

Love the way the inking picks up some of the hearts of the embossing on the scalloped circle panel. This is just lovely the way you have pulled it all together. The little roses with the sentiment are just lovely.
