This is for the My Favorite Challenge this week and the sketch for the card is based on this week challenge at Pricillastyles.
I am absolutely loving this new set, Coffee? Tea?, from My Favorite Things. The dress is paper pieced and I cut out and popped up the sleeve for some dimension. I colored with Copics and added shading with BG000 about the image and Tim Holtz distressing ink in Tea Dye around the edges. I pulled out a ruler and did a little math to get the brads to line up right. Then I wrapped twine around the brads twice. I added crocheted lace up the middle, and tied on a beautiful charm at the bottom. I did zig zag around the edges with my sewing machine. Tough sketch challenge, but I will say I am very pleased with the final product!
I needed a small thank you for a friend, so I put some of her favorite tea in a clear bag. I made the topper with my nestibilities. I made the tag with the same stamp set.
There are more photos and info on my blog if you are interested.

Lovely card and you did an excellent job with that sketch that I thought was quite a challenge. The MMDesign Team thanks you for playing with us this week.
