Last week I received the Lawn Fawn set Sew Lovely. I had to try out the darling dress maker doll image right away. I created this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge from last week. I stamped it on Neenah Solar White cardstock on Tuxedo black Memento Ink. It was cut with Label 11 Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (R81, R83, R85, C1, C3, T3, T5, E41, E43, BG72, BG78). It was layered on a slightly bigger piece of Black cardstock.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 10 3/4″ piece of Solar White Neenah cardstock folded in half. A 3 9/16″ x 4 13/16″ piece of Ducks in a Row October Afternoon Paper was sanded and adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. A strip of May Arts Crochet Lace was taped to the left hand side and the layers and lace were stitched together. The layers were adhered to a 3 15/16″ x 5″ piece of Rose Romance Cardstock before the layers to the card base.

The sentiment is also from the Sew lovely set. The right side of the sentiment strip was cut with decorative scissors. The card was decorated with Basic Gray buttons and Prima Flowers. The big gorgeous flower is from the Madrigal Blossom pack, the pink flowers are Strawberry Hydrangea Prima Flowers.
