Sweet Sketch Wednesday #82

Well things are finally getting back to normal around my house...finally put the Christmas tree and all the decorations away yesterday! It was a busy morning today with the boys first day back to school since Christmas break! But after I got them fed and on the bus, I realized I finally had a little peace and quite and time to myself...more than I've had in the last 2 weeks 

Anyways, I worked on a card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday with the time I had this morning. It usually takes me forever to finish a card project so I was surprised I actually finished the whole thing and got the pics taken all before noon!! I'm a very slow crafter...or possibly just a touch

Since Bugaboo Stamps is their sponsor this week, I used the most precious Bugaboo image I could find in my digi folder! I actually received this one as a freebie last year and finally got a chance to use it! I just love Bugaboo Stamps!!

Some closeups:

And the inside:

PAPERS:Cocoa brown and yellow textured cardstock, shimmery silver and glittery yellow cardstock and design paper all from "DCWV".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The adorable image is a digi stamp from "Bugaboo Stamps". The sentiment; "How Kind of You" is from "Cearly Wordsworth" and was handstamped then embossed with Kaleidoscope embossing powder from "Stampendous".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with PrismaColor Pencils and a Gamsol technique was used. Charcoal black pigment ink from "ColorBox"
EMBELLISHMENTS: Lime green velvet ribbon, hemp cord, yellow button, jet black "Dew Drops", Black Mulberry Paper roses and leaves from "Recollections", Sunny yellow paper flowers and a beautiful sunny yellow organza flower with a sweet white faux pearl made by "ABespokeTouch" on Etsy.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" w/Branches embossing folder, "Spellbinders" w/Oval, Scalloped Oval and Scalloped Rectangle dies, border punch from "Recollections".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with black color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image and flower for even more sparkle! Part of the image was paper pieced and 3D foam mounted.
