Good morning everyone! Hope your Monday is off to a great start. I have 2 cards for you today...surprised aren't you, lol. Today of course is Sunshine Monday! The day the design team for Sunshine & Giggles shares their talents. This will be our last Monday for awhile but we will be back in October with a brand new line- 10 stamps in all!! Can't wait to see the new designs.

My card today is not only for SAG but is also a sketch challenge for this weeks Sketch Saturday. As always they provided an awesome sketch. Here is my take on this weeks sketch.

My pretty little girl in her red dress normally carries a bouquet of flowers in her skirt but I omitted for this card. I used my nestibilites label 4 for image and sentiment and the sentiment is shadowed in black with a stampin up punch-perfect size for my littlest nestie. My flower centers were made with a cirlce punch in the same dp used in the card. I don't know who it is by but I love the cream and black together. This card actually also covers a 3rd challenge but I decided to make another card for that challenge.
The challenge is for Copic Creations which was to color in red or pink. It also mentioned hearts but, oops, no hearts on my cards.
This is a little hard to view but if you click on the image it will enlarge it. The beauty of digital is you can resize the image and this image is small!! LOL. Look much better in person. This is Mummu from Mo's Digital Pencil and I just love her!! I had originally colored her quilt red and grey, to match the quilt work pattern of my dp, but with her red dress it was just too much red.
I did faux stitching to outline my quilt and added the red gingham ribbon. My brads were a the perfect touch to my dp-a perfect match.

Well that is all for today. Be sure to visit Sunshines dt members to see their work. Tenia Melissa Nicole Jennifer
