Evening all, hope you are having a good week and looking forward to the bank holiday weekend, I know I am! For today's card I have followed the fab sketch by Maria Therese over at The Sugar Bowl Challenge. I decided to use my favourite Gorjuss Girl (Sugar Nellie) for this one but I wanted to give her a different look so I paper pieced her dress for a change and was really pleased how it turned out.

The papers are from my new My Minds Eye - Stella & Rose papers pack and I just love this colour. I used a Marianne Design die for the flower and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. The border punch is by EK Success and I added my usual faux stitching.

The rest of the image is coloured with ProMarkers - Tan, Cinnamon, Henna, Satin, Ivory, Blush & Cool Grey 1. I loved working with this sketch and will definitely use it again!

Thanks for looking, will catch up with you all later!
