Cute Card Thursday Sketch - and a new Sarah Kay!

Another week of my Guest DT at Cute Card Thursday! Is it just me or has September just flown by! WOW! This week the challenge is a great sketch - and I took the chance to ink up another new Sarah Kay image -

This is "Charlotte and PepĂ© walking in the rain" Long name for an adorable stamp... LOL I colored with my Copics and then Stickles for the rain. 

Then I went to work on the sketch. I just love the Basic Grey Cappella Paper Pad - Black isn't usually such a strong color choice for me - Not a first choice anyway, but this particular pattern paper I just fell in love with! 
So my card starts off with a Sugar Cookie Bazzil card stock, then matted with sage green, and then a piece of light pink. All sewed together with a zig zag stitch around the pattern paper. Then for the band across the middle, I went with the new EK Success Lattice Chain punch. But it was lost on the pattern paper, so I matted it with the same green, sewed down of course. :0) 

My image is cut out with a circle Nestie, then matted with the brand new Spellbinders Eyelet Lace Circles - they are really making it hard to not NEED all of these new dies!! 

Then my flower!! This is one of the Heartfelt Creations Stamps and matching Spellbinders dies!
 This is Innocents Flowers - I stamped with Versa Mark ink, then embossed with high detail black embossing powder, love the look.. but uh.. next time I'll color with my Copics first... the embossing powder, even after heated smears! AH.. lesson learned and passed on to you ;0) I then cut it out with the matching die, added some Martha Stewart Frond Leaf punches, and some bridal pearl centers. 

I have been having so much fun playing with the DT at Cute Card Thursday - now pop on over there and see what they have done with the sketch!

HUGS and have a wonderful Thursday - and don't forget my Blog Candy! (Listed on the top of my sidebar)
