You're so Sweet!

Hello Friends,
I received some new millinery flowers and ribbon in the mail this week from some lovely ETSY shops and wanted to make a card.  I used a Gorjuss girl stamp set called "Little Foxes" from the UK.  I paper pieced her clothes with some of my paper scraps (the pile I have needs to be USED so I am trying to work on that!).  And added a tag for the sentiment which is from Verve.  It is the "So Sweet Plain Jane".  And used one of my lovely Lil Inker Designs square stitched mat dies!  Love these!

The sweet bow is made with some fabric ribbon I purchased from a woman named Mary who lives in Twisp, Wa. and has an Etsy shop called Homestead Treasures.  I love the sweet vintage feel of it!  So soft and fun!

I used this sketch (below) as a jump off point when making my card - but it ended up being a very loose interpretation of the sketch.  I was using a square card base and was struggling to fit my elements with my Gorjuss girl and her two foxes as the three circles....anyway I have a lot of the elements of the sketch in my card like the 3 "brads" which I made into 2 buttons and a heart bling but I am not sure that it resembles the sketch enough to link up....but thanks for the inspiration Julee!!!

Thanks for taking a look at my card!  The picture above gives you a peek at how sweetly Mary packages her fabric trims! 
Happy Weekend!
