CPS Sketch 281

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for this week's CPS sketch, sponsored by My Favorite Things Stamps.  I've always loved MFT and they just keep getting better and better!  This week's sketch really works well with this cute Pure Innocence image, PI and the Pinwheel.

I chose to paper piece her clothes, adding some contour to them with Copic markers, and then fussy cut the image so that more of these lovely Carta Bella designer prints could show from underneath. I made two tiny pinwheels from scraps of the same paper, held together by itty bitty pink Queen and Co brads.  Because they were so small they were tedious to make...they took me longer than the rest of the coloring and card construction combined!  ;)

I love these colors!  They are soft and warm,  and the dark gray background really makes 'em pop!  She is such a cutie, and this sentiment is so perfect for her!
