Bellariffic Friday: Sketch Challenge!

Yeah it's Friday --- and better still --- it's Stamping Bella's Bellariffic Friday!  This weeks challenge is based on this sketch:
And here's my take on the sketch using sweet little Matilda on her Swing.  With my card I decided to put the sentiment on the inside as it might have otherwise covered up some of that lush rose ribbon.


Little Matilda is coloured with Copics and I've added Glossy Accents to her little coat & hat.


The clouds were done with BG0000 and then the edge of the Spellbinder Oval die was very lightly sponged with SU's Cool Carribean (I find those 2 are a great match).


I added the rose ribbon at the last minute and then realized I really couldn't put the sentiment as per the sketch - so inside it went.  I also used the bottom half of the Matilda stamp, which is the grass and flowers (stamped in SU Mellow Moss):

The sentiment "thinking of you" comes with little Matilda.

That K & Company DP is to die for and of course the rosette ribbon beneath that darling hexagon die cut is fantastic. Knocked this one right out of the ball park, didn't you? Just lovely.

Awesome card! There is so much to look at and it's all so darn gorgeous. And I have that paper so I just might have to case this!

I think this card has more impact with the sentiment inside :) It's very cute and I love your sky and colouring. Isn't that ribbon beautiful??
