SSSC102 - Happy Mail

 Good morning!  It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Karen's got another great sketch for all of us and I hope you'll play along.  For my card today I used the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp set Happy Mail.  I stamped and colored this sweet image using my Copic markers then paper pieced her dress and added my mat.  Then I added stitching to each of the designer paper background panels, a row of scallop border then tied on a ribbon.  I finished off my card by placing the sentiment which I flagged at one end using a square punch and my rose.  My circle (rose) is not exactly following the sketch so I guess I'm just a rule breaker livin on the edge, lol.
 On a side note, I haven't been blogging very much lately because my mojo has taken a little vacation, I think it has to do with the fact that I've got the winter blaaahs.  If you live in a state where you have winter then I'm sure you know what I'm referring to.  Hopefully I'll snap out of it soon and be back to creating and more blogging.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!
