Bellariffic Friday - Sketch 2

Today's Bellariffic Friday is Sketch #2 and my card is for a very special BellaBabe.....Cath!  I wasn't able to participate in the special "Thinking of You" Bellariffic Friday for Cath on December 21 last year (yes, hanging my head in shame) but that doesn't mean I haven't stopped thinking about her!  I stamped Matilda on her Swing - doesn't she look so sweet, carefree and warm?!  She's only wearing a little jacket and not layers upon layers like we are this week to keep the -25C windchill at bay!
I cut the centre of the pattern paper out with an oval and then added a thin ring made from two ovals  It kind of looks like a little frame now.  I added a tiny bit of glitter around Matilda and some fluffy clouds after lightly sponging the sky blue.  I used some green felt for the two layers of grass and left just two little flowers showing.

I love that this image comes with a sentiment (and a perfect one for my card!) which I stamped on a little banner tied with baker's twine.  I kept the inside pretty simple with lots of room to write.

So Cath....honest, your card's in the mail :)

So I'm scaning your blog and see this card and think "Oh My this is so cute how did I miss it" - then I see that it's this past week's sketch and I see my name. Now I know that I didn't make a card like this for your inspiration so I keep reading and see that it's me you've been thinking of...well thank you! That's so sweet and your card is so darn adorable. Love all the felt touches. Can't wait for Mr. Postman to get here!
