Merry Monday

 Merry Monday had another great sketch this week. It was very interesting. I wanted to us a PI image that I got from MFT that I hadn't had a chance to use yet.  I wasn't sure how I was going to make it work with this sketch.

I decided to do a lot of paper piecing.

I really put a lot of time into this card and I think it is very cute. Her dress and tights are DP. There are four different papers from the same Cosmo Cricket Christmas paper pack for the layer. The base card, the MFT die cut and the ribbon are all  SU real red.  I even did some sewing. My sewing machine is working so good now that I had it in for a tune up.  The image was colored with Copic markers. I didn't have much to colors since I paper pieced her clothes.
I was inspired to do the inside of my card a different way after I received an adorable card from Tracy (Tracy's Treasures).  Here is what the inside looks like. Oh and Yolanda or Yoliebean onYT was talking about doing the envelops so I stamped some holly on my envelope.  I tell you I get so many great ideas from these talent ladies.  These are two of my favorite to watch.
So one more card for my Christmas stash.  I did stamp her 3 times so you may be seeing her again soon. I just love the PI images.

Thanks for stopping,
