I just couldn't stick to the exact sketch...
I don't know about you but I can't buy every single thing from every single company to make every exact sketch.
But I can use it as a starting off point and use what I have...
As you can see I started with a grey/beige polka dot base card and, as per the sketch, I added the grey/brown stripe of the right.
Next I die cut the frame using Sizzix "dotted squares" die.
No, it isn't the MFT frame but it was one I had.
No, it isn't the oval because I didn't have one that would fit on the card.
I stamped the girl from MFT "milk & cookies" on white card stock using StazOn jet black ink.
She was colored using Crayola pencils.
I glued the frame to her square and attached it to the card front.
The verse is from the same set and I stamped it onto white card stock using the same StazOn ink.
I then trimmed it down and cut, with scissors, the flags on each end.
That was then applied to the grey/brown strip and that strip was trimmed with scissors as well.
Finally, when I couldn't find my pink sequins, I used the pearls that I did have!
So, there you go folks, not exactly like the sketch but close enough that I think my Granddaughter will like it!
