Back to School...for you!

Hello - I hope you had a great weekend! Since back to school day is tomorrow, I thought I would share this cute little card today!

My image is the adorable PI girl from MFT, but in digi form from Heather Ellis' Digi Stamp Characters Etsy Shop who is also the sponsor this week for Sweet Sketch Wednesday! I love this image with her sweet face and cute dress. I paper-pieced her dress and decided that she is wearing tights so I colored them to match her sleeves.

I flipped the sketch on it's side to accomodate my image, but it's a great sketch no matter how you look at it! A little lace, a flower and some brown pearls finish is off!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #64 - great sketch!
Fussy & Fancy Friday #18 - Back to School
