Fashionista Guest Designer

Happy Monday to all of you!  Today I'm a guest designer over on the Fashionista Challenge Blog.  Their challenge is to make a card for a birthday or a baby, so I decided to make a birthday card.

This little sweetie is Being Cute Is What I Do by My Favorite Things.  She's colored with copics and colored pencils.  I paper pieced her outfit and shaded it with pencils.  I used the Notched Tag Die from MFT to stamp my sentiment and added a flower I made using the MFT Fringed Perennial die.  The sketch that I followed is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 164.  I'm a big fan of Karen's sketches but I think this has to be one of my favorites! 

Here's a picture with the tag removed.  This sentiment is by Inkadinkado and I think it's adorable.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
