Recently I was privileged to win some digis by StampArt Design by Kathryne. She has so many adorable designs that it was hard to choose. Be sure to check out her stamps at the link above and also her page on Facebook. Each week she offers free Scripture digis on Mondays and other free digis on Tuesday. Did I mention yet that she's very generous?
One of my choices was the adorable Sweetie Bear. Sweetie comes with two bonus files and my card today actually uses one of them. I colored Sweetie with Copics and added some opaque white pen stitching along the edges of her hem, sleeves and bodice. I gave her a little sparkle with some stickles on the heart on her dress and a tiny pearl center for her bow.
I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS216) for my card design. The ribbon I used has a little sparkle in it and I couldn't resist adding 3 more little pearls as an accent. And, like I do on so many cards, I finished things off with some faux stitching. The sentiment is part of Sweet 'n Sassy's Baby Blessings Digital stamp set. I liked this easy-to-follow sketch and kept things pretty simple (for me anyway :) ).
