Papertake Weekly - It's sketch week!

Hey everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and since it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means it's time for one of Dawny's awesome sketches and that we're being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!!  So this is what I've come up with for today

I used the absolutely adorable #115 Baby Edwin from the new Princes and Princesses collection which is in stock and available right now at Magnolia-licious! Is he not the cutest little thing? He's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. He's then cut out with Nestabilities. Those gorgeous papers are Graphic 45 matted with Bazzill cardstock.  The big one was cut out using the Expression, and all the sentiments were computer generated.


The lace was from my stash, and I used the Viva Decor Pearl Pen for the corner pearls.


Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out my teamies fabulously gorgeous creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and join us in the challenge!
