Inkspirations Sketch Challenge 79

Finally a blog post!!!! It's been a while. Certainly doesn't feel like my last post was a month ago but it was.
I've been having a really fun time lately with lots of stamping and quite a few workshops. With my parents away all this has been thrown in with 24/7, no break, single parenting of my gorgeous little man; a ten day bout of flu; good times with friends; and keeping my house from turning into a complete mess. Good times!!!

I still have quite a few cards and things to post on my blog from my recent workshops and stamping get togethers. I will hopefully post them this week but tonight I have a card that I just HAD to make for this weeks Inskpirations Challenge. When I saw tthis week's sketch  an idea popped straight into my head (that hasn't been happening all that often) so I sat down to create it before my idea disappeared.

Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:

I am super happy with how this card turned out. I have been wanting to have a play with one of these little dresses on the model ever since I saw this creation by my gorgeous friend Sarah-Jane Kalé. The dress model stamps are from the 'Sew Suite' stamp set and the sentiment is from 'Create A Cupcake'. The colours I have used are Baja Breeze; So Saffron; Perfect Plum and Regal Rose. The gorgeous ruffle ribbon is some retired Regal Rose from my stash.
*** I can't help but think of my Mum as I type this. My parents are currently visiting my youngest brother and his partner in London and this 'Sew Suite' stamp set is actually hers. When she sees this card (if she checks my blog or Facebook) she is going to know I have been borrowing from her craft room. I promise you Mum  I did listen to the  one thing you asked and haven't touched your newest stamps. hehehehehe ****

I feel abuzz with ideas tonight so am going to go back into my craft room and see if I can pull together another idea that is whirling around in my head. Watch this space tomorrow.

Nighty night,
