Thought for the day -

Hey folks- this is going to be a real quick post- I'm running short on time.  I am back, as promised, with my 2nd of 2 cards made with my new favorite character- Stella from Bugaboo Stamps.  I am participating in a craft show in November at work and I am making several red hat cards as we have alot of members in our company.  So you will be seeing quite a few of them over the next several months.

Todays card was made using this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday- another great sketch!
I didn't realize until after I took the pictures that she forgot to put on her earrings.  She now has on a beautiful pair of ruby gemstones.  She wore them on yesterdays card too, lol.  This was a really fun sketch and I kept it very simple. Red & purple cardstock is from Stampin Up. I used a MS border punch and accented with the floral dp- can't remember who it's by. Then just accented with purple and red buttons.  My image is colored with my prismacolor pencils.
