Lawn Fawn/Sketch Challenge

It's another Lucy's Lovely Lines sketch challenge at Lily Pad Cards. This week the Design Team used stamps from our featured sponsor, Lawn Fawn!! I am a big fan of Lawn Fawn stamps and the wonderful people who bring us these happy, whimsical designs. I am seriously loving all the brand sets that Kelly and her DT premiered this week!

I paired the sketch and the Lawn Fawn set Happily Ever After with some Girl's Paperie patterned paper (yes, I'm still hoarding this fabulously feminine paper). I completely gave in to my inner Girly-Girl......

In addition to Happily Ever After, I used stamps from Bannerific, Sophie's Sentiments and Smitty's ABCs.
I stamped the gown on textured vellum and colored with Copics, flipped the edges up, then layered it to a white cs cut out. I stamped a sentiment from Happily Ever After lightly on the yellow gingham and added the self adhesive crochet lace by Hero Arts. A bit of machine stitching is the final touch.

I hope you will play along with the Lily Pad Cards community. I can't wait to see what you all do!

~ Matthew 11:28-30 ~
Then Jesus said, "Come to Me,
all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, let Me teach you,
because I am humble and gentle at heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy to bear and the burden I give you is light."

Al and I are celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary today, I love that man still more every day!
