Mimi & Tulips for Sketch Saturday

Phew!! I just made the challenge this week - talk about leaving it till the last minute lol. Jo has another fabulous sketch and I had to use it come hell or high water!!

I have used Mimi & Tulips from Pink Gem Designs - isn't she such a sweetie! No charms on this one but managed me flower and ribbon!!

Again I more or less carried the sketch through to the inside of the card.

Recipe
Mimi & Tulips from Pink Gem Designs coloured with Distress Inks, Lyra Aquacolors and Twinkling H2O's
The sentiment is by Clever Cut (I think) and the stitching is a HOTP stamp from a QVC TSV kit
The papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet
Flower is one I made, the leaf punch is by Martha Stewart
The scallop punch is Fiskars Threading Water


Thanks for looking,

  1. Great card Bev. Mimi looks great in pink and browns. I have those HOTP stitch stamps, must remember to get them out more often.
    How do you get your cards to look so large on your blog?
