Sweet Thing

This sweet little girl with the ice cream cone is Sweet Kiki La Rue by CC Designs.    I used my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color Sweet Kiki.




I think this is the first time I've used lace on one of my cards and I really like it.  I decided to use the lace to make a matching embellishment.  I just sewed a stitch along the edge of a piece of the lace, gathered it into a circle, glued a little Prima flower in the middle, and it was done.  Just don't tell my hubby that I know how to use a needle and thread lol!  I made my own stick pins using some beads that I've had forever.  I used my Martha Stewart punches for the scallop border and the heart, which you can barely see since I covered most of it with flowers and stick pins.



The greenery and little butterfly were also punched with Martha Stewart punches.  Hmm, can you tell that Martha seems to get a lot of my money?  And, that is not a good thing!  I added some stickles to the ice cream and used the glaze pen on her eyes.  I put some tiny little pearls on her dress, shoes, and the butterfly.  Wow, were those little pearls hard to hold onto.  I added some larger pearls to the corners and  my card was done.



 Thanks for stopping by!
