Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #51

I love Mercy's sketch for this week!! It might be one I use often!!


I have lots of stamps in mind for this sketch but for today I chose Storytime Sophia. She's been sitting here for a while waiting to be inked up!


Supplies:
What I did:
I started by stamping Sophia onto my cardstock in memento ink and colored her with my copics. I also stamped Sophia onto my designer paper so I could paper piece her shirt. Once I had Sophia all ready to go, I stamped the sentiment below her with rich cocoa memento ink.
I got all the panels cut out for the card and then used my sewing machine to stitch along all the edges. To finish the card I adhered all the panels and added a few embellishments.
Almost forgot, I used my bow easy to make the bow. I recommend Suzanne's wonderful video for first time users of the bow easy--or if you're like me, forgetful users, she does a fab job on it.
