On The 8th Day of Christmas, TGF Gave To Me...

Hi All,
Double post today, so be sure to scroll down to catch the 7th sketch.  Anyway, you can find the 8th sketch HERE.  This was a fun one for me!

My colour scheme this time was based on SU's retired Cutie Pie DSP.  My card base is Certainly Celery, then a layer of Sahara Sand, then a layer of DSP.  The smaller rectangle panel was also done the exact same way. 

For the horizontal strip, it is DSP and Whisper White, which was embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.  I added 2 Jumbo Pewter Eyelets to the ends for re-inforcement.

The sentiment is from SU's Oval All set. First stamped onto Certainly Celery CS with Celery ink, and punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  Then, the stamp was inked with markers, stamped onto White CS and punched out with the Large Oval Punch.

The butterflies were punched out of DSP with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch - I used 2 large, and 1 small.

For the main image I used a cutie from the Miss Anya Love set.  She is stamped onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured with Copics, and cut out.  I used her as a substitution for the oval panel in the sketch.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
