Sugar Bowl Challenge 13

Today's card was made for The Sugar Bowl Challenge 13 - Lilian's Sketch:

Besides using the sketch, we were also to use the color kraft in our creation. Here's my take:

I used Just A Girl along with Papertrey's Kraft cardstock and some papers from a REALLY old QVC scrapping kit.

The zig zag stitching on the middle border was hand stitched as my machine couldn't do a stitch that wide. Her dress and boots were paper pieced and the rest was colored with Copics. I also added a tiny little heart pearl in her hair. I used my own method to slightly enlarge the scalloped square Nestie to fit better on my card which is 5" square. For just a little bit of extra interest, I embossed and glittered the edges of the panel under the Gorjuss girl. I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: Fresh Snow ink - Papertrey Ink; large flower - Prima; small flower - Paper Wishes; ribbon - May Arts; glitter chipboard letters - American Crafts; border punch - Martha Stewart; tiny heart pearl - MimiLolo Etsy store; Art Institute glitter.
