Sprinkler Girl - MFTWSC83

I'm a bit late with this card - it was actually last week's MFTWSC83 but I've only managed to finish it now.  I really loved the sketch but struggled with it - I think I should have made the card bigger or the circle smaller :)

I stamped Sprinkler Girl in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.

Her swimsuit as so easy to paper piece - the hardest bit was choosing the pattern!  I settled on papers from MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up and matched them with SU Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery.  The First Place Award Ribbon die-namic was used for the trio of banners.  I used the Botanical Beauty die-namic for the flower and I added a little button in the middle. One teeny tiny twinkle on the flower in her hair finished this card off.

I did the inside too - adding two rows made with the Notched Border die-namic. This would have been perfect timing had I finished it on time as we have had some serious heat here in the last few weeks but today, the rain and cool temps arrived and it actually feels quite nice!

Hi Leslie! Wanted to pop over and join your blog... love this card, especially the paper piecing... I must do that more. Nice job with the MFT borders too; I must add that to my shopping list. 8)

She is so stinking cute. What a great swimsuit and the inside is perfect.
